We have an announcement!
We have added to our family!
He is the newest addition to the living, eating, needing to be cleaned up after, beings that I have agreed to keep track of.
The kids are in love.
And so am I.
I told the kids we would get a cat when Sanders started walking. Well.....one year after that started, I've finally made good on my word. They had to earn him by being obedient and that took some doing.
He was born around mother's day to a neighbor of ours and is already accustomed to living outdoors. I just could not even entertain the idea of having one more mess making thing living inside. We are all happy with this arrangement.
It was very hard to name our new little friend. In the end we put three names on paper, Ferb, Phineas, and Baljeet, folded them up and had Beckham close his eyes and choose one. I was rooting for Baljeet, but Kevin says that Ferb is short for Furball.
Either way, we are very excited!!!
