I caught a butterfly

Filed under: Nature,Travel — Rowan @ 10:14 am

I caught a butterfly and it was not a cabbage white. We caught it in the air with our butterfly nets. We put it in a jar with flower pedals – that was how it was so pretty. It had spots on its wings – only two spots.RowanButterflyCatch

Gopher Story

Filed under: Nature,Travel — Connor @ 7:20 am

We set a gopher trap the night before last night and early yesterday morning I got up, got dressed, and went outside to check the gopher trap. AND we caught a gopher. I looked both ways before I went across the road and then I went and told grandpa that we got a gopher and I asked if I could pull the trap up and he said yes. I said, “I’ll just leave it in the trap until you do something with it.” He said he would come over with me right now. So grandpa took the gopher out of the trap and I saved it until Grams and Rowan got up and saw it. Grams took a picture of it.

It was a pocket gopher. It is called a pocket gopher because it has pockets on the side of its mouth and it gets dirt in its pokcetsgopher and then comes up and shoots it out.

I got to see a real peregrine falcon at the raptor place. I got to see a bald eagle that actually wasn’t very bald. I got to see a Condor – he eats rotten food.

Beach Day

Filed under: Nature — Rowan @ 6:30 pm

I’m going to the beach with my whole classroom tomorrow. I bet I would go back to my school tomorrow. I’m going to Nana’s tomorrow. We called Nana. I had very fun at the beach. I went very fun at the beach sometimes, but when I get hurt, I cry. Sometimes I catch bullheads with our net. Sometimes I don’t. Connor gave me some with his net, when he catch one. When he catch one I get to hold it too. I’m very happy grams is going to help me pack when mom is in Ireland.

Thanks you grams for helping us pack once you’re here. I love grams and mom.
