Pottery

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!

imageYesterday I went to the lake! I went on the paddle board and sat down. It felt kind of Good! I went on the hot dog and I was pushing people off and we were having a blast. My cousin Elsie pushed me off. The water was freezing! I loved the hotdog. Later I found a frog then I took pictures of it and let it go. I had so much fun yesterday!

I really miss Costa Rica with my grandma and the cats and the dog. But I am going to Minnesota today. I hope to sleep in the room on top of the garage.I have to go a 3 hour ride on the plane to Minnesota! That is a long time for me. I hope to do something fun!I hope I will have a great time in Minnesota!Image

Our vacation is over and I am back in Arizona but before we left Costa Rica we went to bat cave. We had to walk through the tides to get to the cave. When we were walking I stepped on a few sea urchins but I was okay because I had very thick shoes on.When we got to the  cave there were bats everywhere so we took a few photos and left. I had lots of fun maybe we can do it next year.
