It was a LONG day, almost 8 hours, of classes and sessions. I hung in there even though I was exhausted.
I really enjoyed learning about how fire helps renew sand hill ecosystems. Besides that the compass class was pretty neat as well.
We went on a field trip to Gatti Town to learn how to make pizza. Most of the kids were a lot younger than me and I didn’t really enjoy the chaos.
I kind of enjoyed making my own pizza and refused to smile for the camera.
I was explaining to the boy next to me that I thought the fractions we were learning were really easy!
After the field trip we drive to Gainesville and visited the Butterfly Garden at the Florida Natural History Museum. I am always amazed by this place.
I had a great time learning about how they mount insects and all the different species of butterflies in the garden.
Today we went out to Ft. DeSoto Park to take some photos for the upcoming Marine Ecology contest for 4H. Here are some of my favorites.
We stumbled upon a fun event at Clearwater Main Library. They had a bunch of tables set up and each table was a different theme of something you could learn how to do. I love learning how to frost and decorate cupcakes.
and eat them!
We learned about shells.
We learned how to fold the American flag.
We learned to sew buttons.
I learned to tie a bow-tie.
We learned about fencing and sword fighting.
We learned how to change a bicycle tire.
There were lots and lots of other tables. What a great event!
Today was International Talk Like a Pirate Day. If you came to Krispy Kreme dressed like a pirate you got a free dozen donuts. Mom, E and I dressed up and drove to St. Petersburg. We got our 3 dozen donuts.
Before we got home E and I had ate over 1 dozen. By dinner two dozen were gone.
We had tummy aches all night. But it was WORTH IT!
