The Boy was given the responsibility of taking care of the schools Blue Tongued Skink for the Christmas Break (I live in a small town, we still call it Christmas at school). So for the next two weeks we have "Henry" (I asked the boy what his name was and he said "He doesn't have one". So I dubbed him Henry) as our houseguest.
I am so proud of my son that the school trusts him enough to take home one of the animals. All his teachers always tell me what a joy he is to have in class. I just hope this continues through his teenage years.
God knows it didn't for me.
