Lately, it's been super hot in New York City. The early morning is one of the only times you can play outside without getting cooked. This morning, I went downstairs and played in my secret tree fort. I like play explorer; I was looking for wild monsters, like yetis or giant hot dogs.
Instead I saw Violet coming up the front walk! I knew she was coming to visit me, but I didn't know she was arriving today. Violet said she a great time riding through our new neighborhood. She wanted to explore it right away, but it was really, really hot, so we decided to go upstairs.
Violet is a champion at Connect Four- especially using the purple pieces. I thought I would never win, but Violet taught me a few tricks. After that, we would fill up almost the entire grid before someone won.
Later on, I got out my animal notebook and explained my plan to fill the whole book with animal facts and pictures. Violet thought it was a great idea; she had a whole list of animals to suggest!
I'm super happy that Violet is here. She knows all about exploring and I know she'll help me learn my new neighborhood really well.
