Some Pets at the Mission Home

Normally pets are not allowed for missionaries, but I have noticed some friends in our backyard a turtle, a rabbit and a gecko - We haven't organized a race between our "tortoise and hare" but so far our hare is the winner as he always disappears before I get his photo
