Emmerson turned 11 this week. One of our Luna moths hatched on his birthday! This look like this when they hatch then in a few hours unfurl their wings. We sang Happy Birthday to Emmerson at 4-H. Then for his birthday gift we all went to see Les Miserables at the Straz in Tampa. We went to a fancy dinner beforehand. I am SO excited to see the show and it did not disappoint! I was singing along and smiling through the entire thing. The next day we were all exhausted but I had to go to a late evning county council meeting for 4-H. I think I want to run for Vice President. Oh, we are also finishing up our Cornell Drawer storage unit. We have been working on it over the last few weeks.
Well this is not my first semester, it was my first on campus class. I asked Mom to walk with me to find the classroom. She said if she walked me she had to take a photo. I was willing. I really enjoyed my first class! Chemistry is going to be so much fun. I sat in the near empty front row. So far it seems fairly straightforward.
School starts back up next week so we took a fun day at Busch Gardens. We watched the chimps gather their food pellets and scarf down huge handfuls. The sky buckets were open. We rode a few times. Mom tricked us into riding Stanley Falls Flume. We got soaked, especially Emmerson! The bumper cars were open for the first time in ages. We rode 5 times! Apparently today was the day of being silly and blowing off steam before school ramps up! Begging Emmerson to ride Cobra’s Curse. He still refuses. What a perfect day! I came home and one of my super worms, Brooker, finally hatched from his Pupa. He will turn all black in the next week.
