Swimmer and Suri

These are the newest members of our household. They are two cute little goldfish that the girls picked out and named themselves. Swimmer is Becca's and it is orange and white. Suri is Kenzie's and it is black. The timing is really bad to be adding members to the household as we will be gone for a week starting in a few days, but sometimes you have to be spontaneous and say "what the heck!" Actually we are only going to be 20 mins from home and intend to bring the fish with us. I know you are probably all thinking why are you going 20 mins from home for a week when school just started? What the heck? Right?!
Well let me explain. My father-in-law works for a hardware store that owns a camp on a lake and lets the employees take turns using it throughout the summer. The lake is only 20 mins from our house and school which means even though we don't get a turn until after labor day it is still close enough that we can still stay and Becca can still go to school. Besides who wouldn't want to spend a week on a lake even of it is only 20 mins from home? Plus it is convenient in case we forget anything, which we inevitably do.

I am also jealous of your week at the lake house. Every year Chuck and I say we're going to come home for the week trip and we're never able too. SOOOO, as I say alot, maybe next year :o) My mom tells me every Becca and Kenzie tidbit..which I love. Wasn't last year at the Lake where Kenzie was quoted, "I'm not crew...I'm Lion King." I still say it!!
