Meet LizArd

This year, I have a couple new guests in my classroom.  One of my students brought in two fence lizards.  I didn't even know that these lizards were native to our area.  They can grow up to 6" long! 

We have had a time with them as over a break, they got out of the tank.  Someone had moved the logs and they climbed out.  We found one the same day we came back but the other one we thought must have gotten back outside.  Almost a week later, another student found in two classrooms down!!!  My students were so excited that we got them both back.  Anyway, I would like for you to meet.....

Liz.  She is the pig of the two and eats crickets like mad!  One day she ate seven in a row.  She is about three inches long from nose to tip of tail.

This is Ard.  He is the runt of the two.  He is only about 1.5" long and does not eat near as much.  We don't know if that is because Liz eats it all or he just does not need as much food.  hahaha  Ard has had a tough time with his tail.  He lost part of it in the wild and then again in the tank.  We are not sure what happened, but think Liz might have thought it was food.

They both really like each other and "cuddle" at night.  Sometimes, Liz will use Ard as a pillow.   I will keep you posted on them.  They have been so much fun and the kids seem to really love them.

September Kit Reveal!

With August being so busy, we decided to move our August reveal date to September. 

This was my month to host and I had so much fun putting this kit together.

Here is what I created.

First I made this card.  I wanted to use the ribbon as I have seen other use it and always like the way it looks.

I also made this gift box.  It would be fun to fill it with candy and leave it on someone's desk as a nice little surprise.

Here is a close up of my flowers!  I am getting better!!!

Thanks for looking and please check out the other ladies in our group.  Here are the links to their blogs.  Enjoy!!!
