New pet....

My 2ND graders have voted for a class pet ...the results are in: PARAKEET.
So today while running errands, I stopped by the pet store and got one and all the supplies. I surprised Jay and the boys by bringing one home..cage and all. The picture above is just a photo I found. I'll post pictures of ours once the bird becomes acclimated to our household. I am going to keep him here at home for the next 2-3 weeks. I hope to have him finger-tamed and at ease before I put him in a room full of 20 eight year olds. The boys have been checking on him all evening and wonder why he won't eat, drink or fall asleep when they tell him to. We will keep you up to date as we come up with a name and he learns new tricks.

Uh, yeah, that should be interesting. One bird & 20 kids. LOL! They will be so excited. Good luck!
