We looked on a leaf– actually a milkweed leaf–and Momma found Monarch butterfly eggs and caterpillars!Â After church, we stopped to get some milkweed because we were running low and Momma found a big Monarch caterpillar, a big one and big one!Â It looked like it was going to make its cocoon tomorrow.
It ate a whole milkweed leaf since yesterday!
I hope it makes a beautiful girl butterfly.Â It makes a cocoon and then turns into a beautiful butterfly!
Yesterday I got a fan and my sister got a fan.Â I got one with a dragon on it.Â Audrey got one with a flower.Â We got it from a program we went to called Flintlock and Tomahawk.Â (It was at The Elkhart County Historical Museum).Â We played.
I tasted some yummy old fashioned candy.Â We learned candy was medicine.Â They changed it cause they realized it was a treat if they put more sugar in and take the medicine out.
Tea used to look like aÂ thick block.Â They used a knife and them scraped it off.Â Them cut a little block out when they were selling tea.
We went yesterday because it was Daddy’s birthday and it was Sunday.
Yesterday, Daddy turned 35?Â I think.Â He’s the best Daddy in the WHOLE WIDE world!Â My momma loves him.Â Me and Audrey and Adrian and Mark love him.Â Â Â His Dad and his mom and our family loves him and some friends love him.
I was in Exploring 4-H.Â I was doing cooking.Â I won a blue ribbon for making really good cookies. I made them all by myself.Â Momma helped me by pouring the hot stuff into the cereal.Â I did everything else.
When we went to the 4-H fair, we ate curly fry chips.Â We ate elephant ears and home made cookies and an apple (or an orange) and buffalo hamburgers.Â I liked it!
We petted horses.Â We saw an animal show with tigers.Â I liked them.Â I think the white ones with stripes were my favorites.
We went to the fair last week.Â I got to ride on Crazy Mouse!Â I liked it.Â It kind of felt like you would fall off the edge.Â Â It turned and we didn’t fall off the edge!Â We spinned and at the end it spinned.
And then we went to another ride, the fire truck.Â Audrey wanted to ride it.Â It was fun but one time it felt like it was going forward, but it was really going backwards!
Good bye for right now!Â Later I will tell about somethings I did for 4-H.
My name is Andrea.Â I am 6 in a half years old.Â I like to play prince and princess.Â My favorite animal is kitties.
If you go in my big brother’s blog, he is the oldest kid in the family.Â I like to play with Mark.Â I get to be the queen.
I have two younger siblings.Â Audrey is at Mrs. Cripes Sunday School Table.Â She loves birthday parties!Â She loves monkeys (Curious Georgies).Â Adrian loves to give hugs and is learning to share.
🙂 Today we went blueberry picking.Â When we got there we picked some blueberries for a couple of minutes and then the Deardorff’s Mom called and then we went to see where them were picking blueberries.Â Then there was 5 girls–not counting their mommy–and them Grandma was there.
We picked probably a half of a big bucket full.Â Or maybe more than aÂ half.Â We picked 14 pounds!Â We brought home 7 pounds.Â We are going to eat them and freeze them.Â We are going back to get more!
