Oh RATS!!






Yesterday, was our monthly Club HOPE mtg at Chase's school. HOPE stands for helping our pets and environment. I am co-leader, with my good friend Chris, and I have to say, we have been challenged. This is our first year having this club at the school, and we have 45 kids! For the most part, they are all super kids, that are really excited to learn about animals and how to be humane and care for them. There are those constant "few" who drive us crazy each mtg, but I think we are getting used to them. Anyway....yesterday, we had another guest speaker. Her name was Ginger (she looked a lot like the actress Joan Cusak!) Well, she brought her pets and little friends...............RATS!!!! [Kelli, I am sure you and Lee are wishing you could have been there]. They actually were quite cute. One of them is a hairless rat - never knew there was such a thing - and it did resemble one of those hairless chinese dogs. So ugly it was cute. I thought i would share a few pics from our meeting for your viewing pleasure. And for those of you with kids, check and see if your school offers such a club, and if not, why not start one yourself?! You will be helping to educate our little ones about all the animals in our world, and that they matter too!

Yikes! I am not a big rat fan at all, better you than me. I think it is a great way to get kids educated on how they can help animals way to go Club Hope!

Uhh...I don't care for rats. I know they're all god's creatures and all that, but I'm good if I don't have to be around them in any way whatsoever. So, when are you going to ask Lee to lead a meeting?
