Independence has two new friends this year. We have two guinea pigs named Reese's and Snickers! This week we got to go visit our new friends. We even got to pet them! All of us were very excited about meeting and petting our new friends. Before we met them, we made guesses about who the new friends Miss Stephanie told us about could be. Some of us guessed polar bears (we were really wrong!) but some of us guessed hamsters and that was really close! We can't wait to keep seeing our school pets grow and get to know them throughout the year. They like to eat yummy fresh vegetabables and we thought that was funny to see the radishes, lettuce and cucumbers in their cage!
