I get to go to the Rotary International Convention House of Friendship this week.
I am so pumped up! I will play chess, sing at the piano, learn about other countries. They always have so much fun and I can hardly wait!
I went on my very first field trip. My school went to the Minnesota Zoo. We road a bus together. The girls were singing and the boys behind them were telling them to stop singing. But I liked the singing. I think I sang too. This is a picture of the shark that nearly scared me to death because I thought there were just little pretty fish in the tank. AHHH.
These are my friends. We're making fish faces telling the shark to come get us. Ha. Ha.
And the coolest news of all. I can ride my bike on just two wheels. Good bye training wheels. I can start and stop and not wipe out too much. Not everyone wears a helmet in my neighborhood but I think it's a good choice. I can't believe I can ride on two wheels now! I keep practicing each night. Too bad I can't take my bike with me to New Orleans.
I weigh 48 pounds and I got a new pair of shoes. Mom says I have man shoes now. Size 1. No little boy shoes any more. I have man shoes.

I'm a Junior Ranger and I like to go to National Parks.
I travel with a Junior A hockey team.
I like to pin trade at the Winter Olympics and Rotary.
This is a picture of me in Vancouver where I was a Peace Ambassador and I lost my FIRST TOOTH!
Some cool things I've learned this year:
I know what a yucca looks like.
I know the difference between a prickly pear and a porcupine -- I've seen both!
I thought it was called a beaver dog but it's really a prairie dog.
Mountain goats can't hear our car because it's a hybrid.
George Washington's face was finished on Mt Rushmore on my birthday a long time ago!
There is a rock that looks like a sheep in Utah.
It's hard to find green and blue rocks at the Grand Canyon.
There are lots of ties with tobacco hanging in the trees at Devils Tower. They shouldn't call it that...call it the Bear Claw National Park instead because of the Indian stories.
There are foxes in the Badlands.
I hugged a tree at Mount Rushmore (it's not called "Round Mushmore")
Ranger Caleb out!
