Hi everyone! I'm finally back from my trip to the hospital. I had to have surgery on my feet because I got a weird infection from my Keens. I had a lot of fun. They let me eat ice cream out of little cups with a wooden spoon. The only bad part is that when I woke up from my surgery, I wasn't wearing any underpants under my hospital gown! How embarassing!
Guess what though? While I was in the hospital, someone gave me a really hardcore bath. Now I have an eye infection. It's really hard for me to open my eye without thrashing around all crazily. I might have to go back to the hospital! Poop dogs!
It's almost October and guess what that means? I get to visit Violet in Utah! I can't wait!
Violet and I had this picture taken last week. Since we're homeschooled, we don't have school photos taken. Instead, we went to American Girl Place and had our portrait done with our dolls! It was so much fun. We both wore our AGP hoodies and carried an American Girl doll. I already miss Violetka so much.
I'm off an a new adventure- guess where I'm blogging from this time? The hospital! My red Keens gave me a really itchy, painful, red rash. I had to come to the Doll Hospital in Wisconsin to get seen by a doctor. I hope everything goes well! Think of me, okay? I should be home in a few weeks.
Today is Violetka's last full day in New York City with me. We've had such a great time together for the past few weeks. She's still here, but I'm already feeling a little sad because I know I will miss her so much. We had a great day together today, because we knew it's our last one for some time. Guess what? Violence's name isn't actually Violence! It's Violet, like the Russian word "фиолетовый," the color purple!! Isn't that funny? I decided that I will have to call her Violetka because she needs a Russian name!
We got up early this morning to go to our last National Park Service site. I think we saved the best for last; we saw the African Burial Ground. It was so powerful. Violetka and I were both crying when we watched the movie they showed us. We held hands and promised one another that we will both always work for peace and justice.
The Ranger told us that the African Burial Ground National Monument doesn't have its own Junior Ranger program yet, but she gave us the Underground Railroad Junior Ranger program to do. And guess what? They are picking the design for the African Burial Ground NM Junior Ranger badge right now! Violetka and I both let the Ranger know which of the designs we liked better. (The one with the sinfoka.)
I think that the African Burial Ground NM is probably the most important thing you should visit if you ever visit New York.
After the National Monument, we both felt like we needed to cheer up a little bit, so we went rollerskating! Well, actually Violet has rollerblades- so we went wheelbooting! She's such a good wheelbooter, because she takes ice skating lessons. Violet taught me to do jumps! Awesome!
I am going to miss Violence so much. It's so hard when your best friend lives all the way on the other side of the country. We are so lucky that we got to see each other twice this year!
P.S. Notice anything different about Violence? She got her ears pierced!
