Guan Yin

Eddie is a flighty creature. He has renamed his hamster from Tai Shan (Peaceful Mountain) to Guan Yin (Goddess of Compassion). He read about her in a story that Grandma had read to him. I don't know what to call it, I'm still calling her "him." But we had her out for the first time tonight, and she ate from our hands and rolled around in her ball. The boys were thrilled and Guan Yin seemed to tolerate us well. She has a sweet tooth for dandelion flowers, and luckily, I don't use any herbicide or pesticide, so ours are safe (and plentiful).

Also, here's a goofy picture of Luke. We bought the boys a couple of sailor hats from Anything Goes the other night. Luke wore his the rest of the weekend. (I strictly forbade him from wearing it at Easter church service!) At the mexican restaurant, he enjoyed storing his nacho chips in it. Those sailor hats are so useful!
