On Memorial Day I was in the parade and it was very hot. Most people took a detour out and quit but not my troop. We stayed in. When I was walking I saw three teachers Mrs Meyers, Mrs.Gilbert, and lastly Mrs.Cutillo. It was nice to throw out candy and our troop to be annonced on the microphone plus our troop being yelled with everyone thanking us. I wasn’t worrying on people thanking me. As I walked my legs grew weaker and I felt as if I was a wax candle in a burning fire. Then I finally got done with walking the two miles. My mom was there waiting for me. She was taking out a water bottle and once I sat down she dumped all the water on me. I took a little sip of the final drops and got some ice tea. The hot dogs were going to be too hot I could tell. I felt so good being able to celebrate for the people who fight for us any day. Even if I have to fight the sun. There were girl scouts and boyscouts. There were I think only Daisy’s, Juniors, and Brownies. There were amazing antique cars there my friend was in one. I love the Memorial Day Parade!

A black bear was caught on May 20, 2012. The police who caught this black bear put on these safety tips to NOT get hurt or threatened by a black bear, or any bear.
1.Do NOT feed or approach a bear.
2. Remain calm if you come across a bear.
3. Make the bear aware of you there by making sounds, changing your voice,clapping your hands, and other types of sounds.
4. Makes sure the bear has an escape route.
5. If a bear enters your home, open your doors so the bear can have escape routes around it.
6. Avoid direct eye contact, and never straightly run away from the bear, instead, back away VERY slowly.
7. To scare the bear away, make loud noised like banging pots and pans, or using a air horn. Make your self as big as possible. Wave your hands straight in the air. If you are with someone else, push yourselves together and put your hands above your head.
8. The bear may make sounds, like popping it’s jaw together and make popping sounds. These are warnings that you are too close to the bear. When this happens, do not run. Back away slowly.
9. If a bear goes on its hind legs, it is either trying to get a better view or smell the scent in the air. Usually this is not a threatening behavior.
10. If the bear does not leave, go to a secure area.
These are just some safety tips, and there is surely to be more in the world.
Their eggs come from Barn Chickens of their very own. In June and August of 2011, the Barr Family had one-day old chicks arrive at the post office. Then, got a phone call saying to go to the post office to pick up the chicks. When they got there, all you could hear was little chirping. A year later, the chickens started laying eggs. There chickens are Free-Range which means they roam around the front of the farm. They tend to eat small bugs and little bits of chicken food. The eggs are collected everyday and are soaked in warm water. Then, are put into cartons. Each carton is labeled by one of them.
They have these breeds of chickens
- Rhode Island Red
- Sicilian Buttercup
Did you know…
- Eggs don’t need to be refrigerated
- Occasionally they find a twin egg or baby egg
- In order to have baby chickens, a rooster and hen have to sit on egg(s)
