Read Julie's Wolf Pack

This is the Sequel to Julie of the Wolves, a Newbery Honor Award Book. Not as good as the first book, but stiil good. This book talks about the pup that was a close friend to Julie. Now the he's the leader of the pack. If you loved Julie of the Wolves, I recommend you read Julie's Wolf Pack too.

Read Julie of the Wolves

Julie of the Wolves is a great Survival story about a girl named Julie who is lost in the Artic and finds some ways to communicate with the wolves and live with them. In the book they tell about her past and the wolf pup that she makes close friends with. A Newbery Medal award Book, I recommend this book to anyone who loves Survival and a hint of adventure.

Camped outside Grandma's house for the night

Spent the night out with my family at grandma's house in a tent and it was really fun, and my brothers were so hyper about sleeping in the tent that they tried to build it as soon as we arrived at 11 a.m! XD

Ate my lunch outside today

I brought a blanket and ate lunch outside today, then spent the rest of my lunch hour reading.  The vitamin D was wonderful.  The gentle breeze and chirping birds helped me relax before going back to work.
