A January Prize
The other day Hailes walked into the house with a prize from our mailbox: the January issue of National Geographic! My dream come true!
Every day when I eat lunch I read about another place. Did you know Timbuktu has all of these ancient books? Did you know some man discovered a cave in vietnam that has a jungle inside it!!! Or that if the ocean temperature of a reef rises like one degree-- the whole reef will die?! Or that the color green on butterfly wings is made from light reflecting off a structure? So amazing. I'm looking forward to some more amazingness. I can't wait!
(Thank you Thank you Thank you to the lovely mom & dad who sent me a grandma house subscription! I promise I'll do cool stuff with it!)
