Well, I got this tortoise for my middle school art class thinking that I would keep it at school, but once I got it home, I fell in love and decided to keep it at home. It is so small and cute. I had some trouble figuring out the best lighting for my set up, but that seems to have resolved itself. I am a mom with three kids, ages 20, 17, and 14. I am also a middle school art teacher and an associate professor for an online college. I have two dogs, two rabbits, fish, and now the tortoise. I like to knit, read, spend time with family, and travel.
