Meet our newest additions:
Three tiger barbs named Rocket, Q, and Socket.  Remember the boys pooled their money for a fish tank?  Well, Speedy ended up being aggressive and did not take to his tank mates who all eventually fell victim to him.  So while we were at the pet store picking up Bekah and Scott's long awaited-for geckos, Alarik picked out three new fish that will supposedly thrive with Speedy.

And here are the two main characters: Speckles and Matches!

The kids saved long and hard to buy all the necessary accessories and the first round of food.  They wheeled and dealed with Uncle DRK for a free aquarium, and Jesse and I finally made good on the purchase of the geckos themselves.
They actually aren't as gross as I thought they would be.  And the kids love them.  The only thing I would have done differently is not get them right before school started. They are proving a big distraction in the mornings when we are trying to get out the door!
