and then there were 70

i got a call from a parent this weekend saying that there were no longer 11 salmon in the tank but instead 30 - 40 salmon!!! where did they come from? i guess the guru was right - they were under the plastic screen/grate thing at the bottom of the tank. so i went into the school today to clean and rescued the remaining few still under the screen. it was really hard to pull up because all the gravel was sitting on it but i got it out. there was definitely some evidence of a couple dead fish but for the most part, there may be at least 70 of them in there. unbelieveable. let's hope we can get them to april and we will be releasing them asap.

Hey Bec! So glad to hear that your Salmon are all doing well, and that they are still hatching! WOW! I am so proud of you! (Great experience for motherhood...!) I really like what you have done with your house! What a beautiful home you and Tim have created, and are continuing to improve. I can`t wait to see it all in person. It looks just lovely - and maybe I can have a sleepover in your spare room as well! I can`t wait! I am SO excited to come home and see you again - only 85 days away!!!
Love always, Katie

I think your kids would learn more from a BBQ than a release. 70 salmon! you could invite the neighbors!
