One of the teachers at our school has had a stroke. Please pray for her. It happened over the weekend. The good news is that she is doing well, and with therapy will have a full recovery. The bad news is that she won’t be able to teach for a while.
She is the critter person at our school. Her room is full of life. She has frogs and fish and rodents and lots of plants. In her absence, we have all volunteered to care for her creatures. I got George. George is a gerbil. I took him into my classroom yesterday. He’s all set up in a fifteen gallon aquarium.
I have been reading up on gerbil care. I think I want to get some more supplies, and based on what I’m reading, I may get another gerbil. Most of the literature says gerbils need companionship. If I’m going to have him for a while, I will feel bad if he’s all alone.
