Submitted by Sarah Johnson on Wed, 08/28/2019 - 6:13pm I hope you all had a wonderful summer, and I look forward to hearing all of your stories about it. I thought I would show you a few pictures about what I was up to I love to find wildflowers, and this year was the first time I found the showy orchis. It was at River Bend! I went on a trip to Italy. I visited the city Pompeii that was buried by a volcano. I ate lots of neat food like octopus! I went to Rome and visited places like the Colosseum that are almost 2,000 years old. I saw beautiful buildings like the cathedral in Florence. I kept the Leaning Tower of Pisa from falling down! I got to ride on a gondola in the canal in Venice. When I got home I added some new plants to my succulent collection. I found lots of monarch caterpillars at my farm. I went to the state fair and ate some crazy food. My whole family came together to celebrate my nephew's wedding.
