And here is one that I played with.
The other day there was a lot of snow! So we made a sledding hill. It was a short one because the snow got deep and it took a while to get far. The snow was soft and not packed well so I was one of the last ones to go on it.
It is raining a lot now and there is a lot of water. It has almost melted.
The other day Megan and I made a snow fort!
The fort was made entirely out of snow.The snow fort was one of the biggest ones we made. It had two doors and was like a short hallway. Thor could even fit in it, it was that big! When he got in and sat down he would lick the sides. He also would also walk through it.
Yesterday the snow started to melt and it rained a lot. Then the fort fell down 🙁 .
- He might see his shadow, so there will be SIX MORE weeks of winter.
- He might not see his shadow, so it will be spring soon!
- He might NOT come out. (Would that be six more weeks of winter)?
- He might have done it in the hall with the revolver! (No, that’s Clue).
- There might be no more groundhogs 🙁 (That would be awful).
Those are the conditions, let’s look at the the first one: He might see his shadow. That means six more weeks of winter.
Now we need to prevent that so lets look at what makes shadows (Thor taught me that!). Light makes shadows because light cannot bend, and groundhogs and dogs are opaque (That means light cannot pass though us! Thor taught me that too). We just need to find something to block the sun from the groundhog! If we block the sun then that brings us to the next condition.
The next condition is that the groundhog might not see his shadow. That’s no problem, let’s go on to the third one!
This condition states that he might not come out. First we need to set up something like I said at the end of condition one. Then we need him to come out, let’s use groundhog (Or dog if you have none) treats. When he comes out we can see if it is still winter or not.
The fourth condition is that he is playing a game. When he puts away the game he might come out, if he does’t come out try the third condition again.
The last condition is that all the groundhogs are dead. They have been lying to us all this time!
I do not know what what the weather will be like on groundhog day but I hope the weather is nice but I hope it is cloudy enough so there are no shadows so the groundhog will not see his shadow.
It’s too cold. I want spring!
Flopsy’s autobiography : Chapter 4
Dear Mommy, I love you a lot!!! I have been having lots of fun here.
My new friend, Thor and I play hide and go seek. It is lots of fun! I hide and Thor seeks. It is lots of fun! Here is how we play; Thor counts squirrels quietly but he usually falls asleep. I hide and Thor tries to find me when he wakes up (he is very lazy). Most times he doesn’t look for me but sometimes he finds me accidentally! That is when it is the most fun.
The other day Nora came over. It was very fun and I enjoyed it. We watched a movie. I think it was called The Love Bug. They kept talking to someone named Herby who never answered but honked a horn instead.
And on Sunday they watched a dragon movie. I did not watch it. It was very loud and VERY scary! Dragons kept flying at the screen but they never came out into the room. One dragon acted a lot like Thor.
The kids brush me but I don’t like it unless I am on my bed. Their daddy said I was a silly dog and I wonder if that is a good thing. They still take me out on a leash, but I am getting used to it.
On Sunday, it was squirrel appreciation day. I showed my appreciation by barking at them a lot. (Yes, I got detention.) It was also National Hugging Day but I did not hug the squirrels! Adrian said that they bite. I wonder how he knows that?
Thor is having fun with me! We play a lot and have fun too. Thor plays with his KONG and I have no idea how he holds it in his mouth. The kong is that big! It is even bigger than my food dish!
I have learned how to steal Thor’s food! It is easy. The biggest problem is to make sure I do not fall in. The water is not working so well, as I can barely reach it and am afraid that I will drown if I fall in.
I am having lots of fun. I wish you where here to have fun with me and play with me.
I love you and miss you.
After a rough firstday, Flopsy enjoyed the next day much more!
I love you, and miss you. Life here at camp is so much fun. My counselors are Audrey and Megan!
I have a new friend, his name is Thor. Thor is big and snores a lot but I like him, his counselor is Adrian. We play a game called ‘The Couches are Lava’. If you get on one they take you off, so the flames are extinguished! We play it easy so all the couches are lava but our beds are safe.
We don’t know when mess hour is but usually it’s after Audrey gets home both times . Audrey leaves a lot but it might be a surprise for me… Or it might be to feed the animals across the street, but I don’t know and I won’t ask.
It has been snowing here a lot. My biggest problem is that it is very cold out.The camp is very nice and warm and I like it a lot.
I am learning lots of new things like obeying, reading, and writing. Maybe I can get my hair dyed red like Audrey and maybe it will turn pink, I like pink a lot! I hope you are cool there and make sure you drink a lot of lemonade.
Love you a lot,
This month we are babysitting Flopsy (Oma’s dog). She is white and small. We are making up stories about Flopsy with just a little bit of truth in them. Here is the first note that “Flopsy” wrote to Oma.
I love you! These weeks without you have been soooo long. Audrey leaves a lot and I miss her, I whine hoping she will come back faster but they don’t like it. They also don’t let me on couches, they scold me when I get on one. At night when I go out Audrey puts me on a leash because I decided to take a walk on my own one night. She did not like having to come look for me at their neighbors.
Their big dog is mean. He eats my food when I don’t touch it for a while, he sometimes drinks my water too! They put me in a cage when they leave but Thor (their dog) gets to roam around, it’s just not fair.
Mommy please! please! please! Get me out of here! Get back soon! Otherwise I might starve to death! But it’s time for bed now mommy.
Today Momma, Megan, and I went to library and then the park and splashed in puddles because
today is splash in a puddle day . We found a large puddle and played in it for a while, we had lots of fun today and got very wet!
Today we went sledding and had lots of fun. It was was warmer then the last few days. There were no people there and no large bumps on the hills. I went the farthest on the sleds. (To be argued with Audrey 🙂 )
We had a try to bump into momma contest, Andrea won! Momma moved out of the way just in time.
When we where done we played King (Or queen) Of The Hill, this time Megan won. Then we went to see the river and there was ice on it. We made some snow angles on it. Then we went home and got some hot chocolate.
