yes, thank you to clynnking for the great compliment....I really do give my all for the kids....but to be honest the fish are for ME, it's just a side benefit that by sharing this experience with the kids we are ALL learning together! All of my kids from 3 years old to 19 years old were all cheering when the (test) water in the test tubes turned pretty colors, and I told them that that meant the "invisible good bugs were growing" and that meant we should be able to move our fish soon....I'm hoping for Monday...we ALL are!
And thank you to HomeDog (whom I miss....I wonder where she/he has been lately?) and Huma Huma for their endless patience with me. I really want to do this one right, and set a good example for my kids in responsible fish ownership. But people assume that because I work with children that I have patience...and I'm telling you, I do NOT! I want to move my fish NOOOWWWWW!!!!!
Thank you all again! Now I am off for yet another endless round of water testing and PWC
