A New Member of the Family

We have a new family member...his name is Franklin and he is a Red Ear Slider Turtle. He is tiny, as you can see in the pictures, and the boys love him!! Franklin even had to go to church with us yesterday because FJ said he needed to hear the Bible stories = )! He is really easy to take care kind of pet!! He needs sunlight and some baby turtle food, but other than that, we don't have to do anything for him.

The boys found him at my aunt's house in the window well, and my cousin Denise helped them get him out with a net. The people at the pet store said he is a baby and one man told us that he wished he could find a turtle like Franklin for his son. He said Franklin is a perfect pet! As for me, I don't mind him as long as I don't have to touch him!!!!! I think he is cute at a distance! All in all, if we have to have a pet, I think Franklin is great!
