Thank you everyone for all your nice messages about my encounter with the new girl. I haven't seen her outside since, but I am going to be friendly to her if I run into her. Maybe if we do become friends, I can tell her that my family might look differently, but we are still a family and we love each other no matter what.
Today, before ballet class, I went outside to play and wait for the mailman. I was waiting for a special package! There were no other kids my age outside, because most of them were probably in school. Now that it's springtime, the grass is growing so quickly! I wonder when our building's caretaker will mow our little grassy area?
Eventually, the mailman arrived. I ran right up to him and he told me he had my package! It was my new Junior Ranger badge for doing the World Heritage program! World Heritage Sites are like National Parks and Monuments, only they are all over the world. Several of America's National Parks are also World Heritage Sites. The National Park Service has a great kids' website where you can earn this badge by learning about the World Heritage Program around the world. Click here to go to the site- you can earn a badge too!
I love doing Junior Ranger programs! Doesn't my outfit look kind of like a park service outfit? I think it does! When I grow up, I am going to be a Park Ranger or a ballet dancer. I would love to teach other kids about the natural and cultural wonders in the United States. Do you have something you are passionate about? What do you think you'll be when you grow up?
P.S. I know the pink poufs in my hair don't match my clothes. What's a good place to get little hair scrunchies for when I wear teddy bear buns?
