There's a Leopard in the House!! Or...Am I Seeing Spots!

A Leopard Gecko that is!

I have the unique privilege of living with a daughter that loves all of God's creatures. Yes, I do mean all. Creepy or not! LOL Insects, tadpoles, snakes, salamanders, fish, spiders....you name it! (And she wants to have all of them live in the house!)

And so, this fella shown above (whose name is Frodo) has his own space in our little house. He has been with us about 3 years I guess. He's quiet (read:doesn't sass ya or keep you awake at night!), moves slow (read:I can out-run it!), and I don't have to feed it (read: eats things that are alive--ewwwwwww) my daughter does! (feeds it I mean--not eats live things) :0)

Oh, and he's friendly and doesn't bite--another bonus!

My daughter took these pictures, and I thought they came out quite well, so I thought I'd introduce you to one of her menagerie!

(Doesn't he look like he's smiling in the pic above!?)

She did it!

I haven't been able to post for a long time due to all of the prep, and clean up of this special event. Oh, and the recovery time needed! LOL

Freedom in Christ Academy (alias our homeschool) produced it's first graduate this month! My daughter finally had her big day. :0)
Here she is above with her dad and I - he is reading and presenting her diploma. :0)

Bri's sweet friend Bethany playing her harp for the graduation--she did a wonderful job!

She is pictured above listening to the charge being given to her.

This is Bri with our Pastor and his wife (our illustrious piano teacher/player!) in front of the chalk art Bri did for her graduation while the Pastor preached.

Bri and some of her friends after the ceremony.

Let there be cake! Yum!

We decorated the fellowship hall in her favorite colors...

We put up a board with her artwork, a few awards, and a guest book & autograph puppy to sign.

Bri and some more buddies...

Bri, my mom and I....three (exhausted!) generations.

The whole family...sharing in her joy!

(the real us) THE END! LOL

(now I have 3 years to recuperate before the next one!)
