We went to the dollar store to find a protractor for math for me but of course got a few other things. This magnifying sheet, my mom says like they used to put on the window on the back of a van when she was a kid, was one of them. It came in handy for watching Alex. We have to catch Alex bugs from outside now because the fruit flies that we bought are too small for him. So we go out every day and catch Alex some food. Alex got a big juicy moth this morning. I would say that Alex is about three inches long.
