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.
I so excited that I saw a the Cedar Waxwing. I officially added him to my Great Year LIST today. I wanted to list all the perching birds I have seen so far.

Today was family report day. My report was on Tuvalu the country where I was born. I told my classmates about my family that lives in Funa Futi. FunaFuti is both the name of an island and the capital of Tuvalu. Tuvalu is a beautiful, tropical country made up of nine islands in the middle of the South Pacific near New Zealand and the island of Fiji. Tuvaluan people speak a language similar to the people from Hawaii and Fiji. Thank you!
