everyday stories from a kid's view

On June 2014 I went to Costa Rica.But I am not there right now!So in this blog I am going to show you some of the things I forgot to post. The ZOO (Minnesota) Right after I went to Costa Rica I went to Minnesota. We went to this really big zoo! And we got to touch goats and cows and all sorts of other farm animals.It was so fun. There was these goats that were really really nice and I got to feed them and they were also friendly with Chase. Most of all the big part of the trip was The Parakeets in a big big like chicken coop wired room. So we got to go inside and they all ran away but when we purchased some food on the stick they all came flying everywhere and my toes were like being bitten off because the birds kept nibbling on them about a minute in there about my whole stick of food was gone! After that we saw camels and lions and raccoon’s in trees. It was so fun!

Things I did in (Costa Rica) In June 4,2014 I went to Costa Rica.I went to Bella Vista Mar Hotel and saw huge bugs and went to see baby sea turtles and met horses. We always,always used to go to Cafe de Paris (cafe dei parieee). While I was in Costa RIca I found this interesting bug. It kind of looked like a caterpillar, but I don’t think it was. We also saw some horses when we were driving to a store named Super Nosara. Nosara is a small town in Costa Rica. There is also a dog named  Kayia she is always really nice and kind. She is a really good dog. She is my grandma’s dog. I love Costa Rica.

imageimageimageimageToday I drew a Cat It was not an ordinary cat like some people draw mine was very detailed and shaded in correctly.I was very very happy with my work.I learned how to draw a cat on YouTube.It was really hard and kind of easy at the same time.At first I did not know how to draw my cats face because I could never get my circle right.I had to pause the video lots of times and made sure I had exactly what they drew so it could look good.It turned out really nice and it was a 3D cat.It first looked like it was floating in space but I put a circle around the bottom of the cat.The girl on YouTube that showed was ART – ALA – CARTE.I will show you a picture here. https://www.youtube.com/user/TheARTalaCARTE

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  negative 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
