Lessons from the inevitable ending of festival-won fish

by Traci Schumacher on Tue, 11/05/2013 - 11:33am

The fall festival sent us home with three little goldfish: Ralph, Goldilocks, and AlphaStone. Three kids. Three fish. Perfect.

We pulled out our previously unused fish bowl, gravel, and plastic plants, and set up a fishy oasis in the kitchen. Three little fish swam, unconcerned. Excitement.

By Monday afternoon Goldilocks and AlphaStone floated, no longer troubled by the things of this world like when the yummy food flakes would appear again.

A couple weeks ago, my daughter's teacher asked her class if anyone could take home the class fish and care for them during the Thanksgiving break. My daughter begged me to volunteer and, because I do not want fish of our own, I agreed, hoping this would be an easy way to appease her fish desires for a while.

My kids are crazy about animals. Therefore, we have a lot of small plastic animals – you know, the kind that come in those tubes at the craft stores. We can throw a handful of plastic animals into a small box or bag and away we go. Portable entertainment!

Weather forecasters expect next week to be gorgeous. You can still make last-minute reservations at Georgia State Park lodges, which are
offering special discounts. Instead of heading to the airport and waiting in
security lines, all families need do is grab the kids, jump in the car and
drive just a bit to get to a beautiful Georgia State Park lodge that has the
same amenities as a nice hotel but discounted holiday rates that start at $69
per room.
