Elvis had a wonderful birthday last weekend and keeps asking if he gets to have another party. I can’t beleive he is already three but he always remembers to remind me that is how old he is. He was a little too excited to eat, but that was alright, he wanted to play with his friends and family much more. It was just the right weather too, I thought it might rain on us but nope we had a good day. His wish, though, was not expected! He wished for a real rabbit. That was the first I had heard of that wish, maybe next year for his birthday.
Elvis did get to go today and get a new pet. He has asked since we told him we were moving for a fish for his room. He and I went this morning to get a betta fish. I was worried the little guy would not make it home from being looked at so many times. We got the little fish tank set up and I asked what the fishes name was going to be. Elvis is really enjoying the story of Jonah and the Whale and I thought for sure he was going to be named Jonah. Nope, We now have a fish named…drum roll please…Fishy. How unique, but at least he named the little guy all by himself. After getting Fishy settled in his new home I started in on lunch. Elvis was a bit to quiet, the kind of quiet you know he is up to something. I went in to find him with his hand in the fish bowl. “It’s OK momma, I was just petting him.” With that kind of statement I don’t know how long he will be a member of our family but Elvis already wants to learn all about fish now so it has become a good learning experience.
We have also been enjoying our small garden, we have started to get zuchini from it and have a couple pumpkins now growing. I love to garden and to be outside so I am glad that my son has also started to enjoy it. I have been so busy at work and will not get to take my vacation as I had planned in the summer but rather in the fall so maybe Elvis and I can get the garden all set up for next summers adventures.
