Bubbles

February 22, 2013 Photo of the day: "Bubbles"


Meet Bubbles, our Betta. 

Last February, one of my seniors gave me two goldfish for my birthday. A week later, while presenting at the Central States Conference for Foreign Language Teachers (The World in Your Pocket), I got a text from my substitute along with a photo of my students giving Pierre and Jacques a "burial at sea" (ahem!). Although they were only there for a week, everyone enjoyed les poissons. So my nephews, Alec and Chase, picked out and named our new pet, "Bubbles." He lived at school for the rest of the semester, and moved home with us for summer vacation. Certain family members (i.e. Eric) became quite attached to him, so it was decided that this year, Bubbles would be "home schooled!"
