Meet Izzy!

Samantha has been working on a "crayfish" unit at school. When it was over, her teacher said the kids who wanted a crayfish could have one, as long as their parent signed a permission slip. It was a lottery drawing. And guess who won?
Yes, yesterday Samantha brought home "Isador" and she calls her Izzy. She showed us that she is female, and she even told us quite a few other things I didn't know, like the crayfish is cousins with the lobster, it pinches, it can take its eyes inside, and some more that I can't remember. She's not afraid to pick her up, either, even though she *almost* got pinched a couple of times!
Her friend Sarah also won one! And we thought it was neat that Sarah's was "H" and Sam's was "I" and together they spelled "hi"! :)
They had a little crayfish race in the living room yesterday, and showed how to see their breathing using food coloring. It was pretty neat!
Welcome to the family, Izzy!
