Allyson (kid no. 3) is now officially ours. Her mom signed the papers on Christmas and the judge finalized everything on January 2.
One of the first things Allyson asked for was a rat. EEWWW! I was negotiating for a little white mouse when one of the interns said she had chinchillas that she was giving away. So, we investigated and researched and brought home a Chinchilla to add to the zoo. The kid is beside herself. I think the Chinchilla would be happier if the cats would not hang out at her cage. But she is adjusting well to the zoo.
Allyson is adjusting to living at our house. She is having to do some things for herself that she did not do at Mom’s, but she is getting the routine. She is being a big help by feeding the horses when she gets home from school. I figure the least I could do for a bit is make sure her clothes are washed and put up. We will transition into the more independent thing. I think that part is real new to her.
Well, better get back to the real job. Have a great week!
