Happy day, friends! What fun things have you been doing?
We have been busy working on the garden still. Our strawberries are ready to pick now! They are so good, I think they might be my favorite fruit.
We also got to go to the Smoky Hill Museum the other day. I didn’t know what a museum was at first. My human sister told me it is a place where they take care of and display things from history. Things like art and items from different people and places. They can tell you about how people lived long ago.
The museum has a dugout house to show how some people lived. A dugout is a small house that would be built into the side of a hill. The hill would help keep the inside cool in the hot summers and keep it warmer in the cold winters. They didn’t have electricity back then so that meant no lights, no heater or air conditioning. I wonder what it would have been like to live that way.
We also got to see Native American items. There are these things called tipis. They are kind of like a tent and were used as shelters. This area was one of my favorite places there.
This one wall there was covered with small hot air balloons and kids got to write down what they liked to play and hang them up with the balloons. My sister helped me make one. What is your favorite thing to play?
Mama said we would go back one day. I sure hope so! There are more things I want to learn about there.
Well, I have to go now, I think my sister is trying to eat all the strawberries. Thanks for stopping by to see me, friends. Bye!
P.S. The library has some really good books about museums you can check out if you want to learn more.
