Okay I am a HUGE Rick Riordan fan and this was an awesome opportunity. We drove to Orlando to attend his book release for Tyrant’s Tomb. We got all sorts of swag, including signed books! This is our new friend Logan with us. He is in archery club with us as well. We had a wonderful time. Rick Riordan was insanely funny and the event was epic. Three happy nerds! 🙂
We had a great time with the crew of CMERA learning about sharks and marine biology. Sadly, we didn’t get to see any sharks but we did get to have fun trying. Learning how to bait the long lines. We did catch a few remora and had fun playing with those. I loved fishing off the back of the bot for baitfish. Every time you dropped a line you hooked SOMETHING!Â Relaxing after along morning work.Â Too bad the winds were too strong. We are going to go out again in April with the crew and try again! Such a wonderful field trip!Â
We kicked off the year with our annual awards banquet. I got a gold clover award with $100 in clover cash to use towards events. This is the highest level you can get as a junior. Not I moved up to intermediates and am working for an emerald award this year.Â Our insect club got club of the year. I have lost 6 teeth in the last 4 weeks. They are just jumping out of my mouth left and right! My hamsters are still fuzzy and loveable. This is Butterscotch. This is Blue. We found a new fun ice cream treat place. It is called vampire Penguin. We enjoyed some bug hunting with Steven. Our County Council meeting was a huge success. I think this was the most people we have had in a long time. We had a guest speaker who taught us about making healthy breakfasts. We learned how to make 4 different egg dishes.Â We all got to try out all the dishes in the kitchen. It was a lot of fun.
