Our First Pets

Meet our three newest additions to the Kurecki Family:
These three creatures are our family's first pets! What a great way to test out the pet world in our house. The kids couldn't wait to get them home and settled into their new bowls. We tucked them all in their new fish bowls and gave them fishy kisses goodnight. Success! (so we thought)
Unfortunately, less than 12 hours of owning our fishes, we are sad to report that we had our first fish fatality. Poor Lollipop went to be in fishy heaven this morning after breakfast.

I should of known that something would go wrong...When Raina picked out her fish, her response was rather odd, "No Mommy, I don't want to take it home. I want to eat it." I think she mistakenly thought her new goldfish was a Sweedish Fish that she had been snacking on earlier.

The kids and I took the fish outside to the dock where we held a special prayer service for her. We each said our goodbyes and thanked God for giving us a sweet friend.
And even though she only lived with us for 12 hours she will always hold a special place in our hearts.

I think it's safe to say that we will wait a few years to own a dog.
