Meet the newest – and smallest – member of our household: Guacamole the Anole!
The anole was a 3rd grade science project for my son early in the school year. One day he brings home a permission slip, and asks us to sign. The anole project was complete, and the 8 anoles currently residing in the 3rd grade classrooms needed a new home. If we sign this little slip of paper, our son could be entered into a drawing and have the chance to take home his very own lizard! My gut reaction was ‘NO!’ But my son’s patient pleas and soul-devouring deep brown eyes finally convinced us to sign the paper. It was okay – but I was still banking on slim odds that his name would actually get drawn.
As it turns out, I am a pushover. Only 8 kids actually got their permissions slips signed – and we ended up with a lizard.
