(note to reader: this is a pet turtle. it is in no way/shape/form related to the infamous 'desert tortise'. no turtles have been harmed in the making of this post.)
kaitlyn found this little feller--we found out that he's named jermaine, which naturally makes me love him more--on our porch the other night.
he had this note attached to him:
she then unscrambled the letters left with jermaine, and found out that this boy had asked her to her FIRST DANCE (!):
needless to say, the appearance of jermaine caused much excitement in this house--including, but not limited to: squealing, screaming, lots of "awwwwwhhhh, he's so cute!", and "mom, can we keep the turtle?"
the mother may or may not have commented that anybody named after michael jackson's brother would most certainly always have a home with them. allegedly.
kaitlyn couldn't be more thrilled--this andrew is a heck of a dude. (but her parents are even a bit happier.)
