Thorndyke Thoughts

Hey Kids! It's hard to believe it's almost August already. This summer is really flying by! I'm having so much fun seeing all my friends at the library. I'll be really sad when you all go back to school. I wanted to tell you about my new friend. He's in the fish tank and really small. He's a baby snail! Right now he is mostly wiggly, squiggily and shell-less, but if you keep watching, he will grow his own new shell! He's pretty cool. Even though it doesn't look like they do much, snails are very interesting animals. If you're curious to find out more, there are lots of books about Snails here at the library! While you're at the fish tank, don't forget to wave to Nemo also. I don't want him to get jealous of Baby Snail's attention! Until next time,
Bear Hugs!

Fish News - Why Haven't The Fish Moved Yet?

Blubbbb. Blubbbb.

You're probably wondering why I haven't moved yet.
Well, the answer is that the water isn't "conditioned" enough for us.
It will be soon and then I can swim and swim and swim.
