Tom's School Visit

This morning Samuel and I took Tom to Aaron's school for a visit. They are studying the life cycle of ponds at the moment and Aaron asked if he could take Tom to school. So we took him for half an hour ... I didn't want poor Tom to have heart failure which might have happened if he was there all day! hehee
.
He went back into his little portable tank and when he was travelling on the top of the pram he sat up on his rock and was watching where we were going. :-)

Aaron told his class mates a little about Tom (his talk involved lots of hand motions hehee)
Then he "supervised" and let all the kids touch Tom's shell. There was a lot of squealing! I don't think Tom liked it very much! Every time someone touched him a bit hard he would do a bit of a jump and his head would disappear ... hence the squealing!
I think Tom is happy to be back home in his big tank! :-)

Well the kids all seemed to like it. I'm sure Tom is glad to be home:)

can definitely understand Tom wanting to hide and I'm sure he is more than a little pleased that he is back home and doesn't have so many wee fingers poking at him ...

Looks like you have a good speaker there! Well done Aaron!

I bet that was really fun for Aaron's class! He looks like a pro, standing up the front and talking. Wonder what he'll end up doing for a job?! :-)
