Today, Myles and I rode with Dad through the green valleys
around our house. It is so beautiful living here in Wisconsin.
I wish my friends in Tuvalu would visit me this summer. I know they would love it here. I could also teach them about foraging for different edible plants up the valley and in the prairie.
The winter might be too cold for them but I think they would enjoy snow shoeing, sledding and even ice fishing too.
Today I went to school with my friends Cecile and Edna on my
new igloo ICE boat. We sailed along the very, very frozen Kickapoo river and through the farm fields of our friends to commute to work. Eric, who is a timber wolf, came with us in case we ran into any problems with a rough gang of squirrels that hangs out near the forest on Krebson’s farm close to the school. Ophelia the hen sat at the front of the boat as our look out.
My ice boat is of course made of ice. But all parts on the boat are upcycled from other things we found in our barn. I use an old ski boot on a ski to steer the ice boat. The ice boat has four big old skis so it moves quickly through the snow. The sail is made of antique, empty, grain bags, and the wood is all from a
Can you think of different ways you can get to school without using a car?
Today Myles watched the chipmunks out our screen porch door with two of his friends Cecilia the hen and Harold the bunny. I think I heard Harold say he saw the chipmunks wearing very small hard hats and carrying a tiny ladder. Cecilia commented on how the chipmunks seemed very secretive. Myles barked a few times but mostly he moved his head around while his tail quickly wagged back and forth.
I like Summer because I have more time to read to Asimina. Asimina is a beautiful Paw Paw tree on a small hill near my house. When I go to read to her my friends come with me to listen to the story. Asimina has big pretty flowers that later in the Summer turn into delicious fruit that tastes like mangoes, and bananas, and pineapple. We plant the seeds from the Paw Paw fruits to grow new Paw Paw trees that is also why we love Asimina so much.
