everyday stories from a kid's view

Today I went to see the trains at Mr.Frenches house.He decided he wanted to give us a tour.So we went on the tour.He taught us all about trains.The first trains originated in the 1830′s.There Was a cool fact that ┬ánegative and positive charges are on train tracks.It was so cool he had so many trains.I think they were collecter items.He has 5 rooms of trains.And in his bacement he had coin slots and basket ball shooters and a pool table.He had lots of really interesting Lego trains.I hope i can go there next year!

Today I am going to Wisconsin to see my great grandparents. I was there before like 2 or 3 years ago.It is really cold in the winter time. Usually when I’m there I try to find salamanders. I rake their yard too so that I can earn money. We will probably go to the zoo or stay at home. I can’t wait to visit.

Pottery

On Labor Day weekend I went to Flagstaff and we first went to sunset crater and it was cool because I got to see lava rock and some of the stuff on the lava rock was fungus.That lava rock has been around 10,000 years.And it is sacred of the Sinagua tribe and their pit houses are now buried in the ground.Then we went to see the first pueblo. It was too bad we did not get to go in it but it was pretty fun seeing it too.Their houses were built out of adobe.Then we went to 2 other ones and at another one of them we saw a piece of pottery on the ground but we could not take it with us.Then next one we went to had 3 pueblos and we did not get to go inside of it because it was off a cliff and that would be too dangerous.Then after

all that we went on a trip through the woods and it was awesome and luckily there was not that many mosquitoes. We were supposed to find a ruined cabin but we could not find it. I hope I can go to those places next year.

Thomas-snake

When I was in Minnesota I was riding my scooter when I saw a snake and ran inside. Then my cousin Elsie came and picked it up.We looked up what the snake was called on the internet and it was a Garter Snake! We named it Bob and we played with him and we cared for him so much that we took him in the room above the garage and played with him. Then he got thrown out in the woods. Then me and my mom were searching until my mom found a snake and we named it Fred but then we slowly changed his name to Pinecone and we made a perfect habitat for him. Then one day we let him go because he was very hungry even though I fed him worms. I hope I can find Pinecone and Bob again!
