If you have followed my blog for awhile, you may know about my love of turtles! It started as a child, and has become a running theme in my classroom(the kids always get me turtle things for Christmas or draw turtle pictures at home for me!). My birthday was yesterday(37..ugh?!?!), and my wife insisted on making the day special for me..even though I was ok with not really celebrating. One of the amazing birthday presents I received was this little turtle. He's super cute....but that isn't what's so amazing!
