My Day at the Botanical Gardens

Last weekend my family and I went to the Botanical Gardens. I didn't know what was there, but I wanted to go so we could have a picnic. That's what my mom promised! We walked through the area of the gardens where they have all kinds of different pine trees. Me and my little brothers collected these huge pine cones. It was fun and my brothers really liked being able to walk around like the big people. We also went through the museum that they have there. It was really cool, but the coolest part was right when you walk in the door.

Can you tell what it is? It is a gigantic pre-historic alligator skull. If they would have let me, I could have fit inside it's mouth. It was one of the neatest things about the museum and about my day. There was also a skeleton of a giraffe that was cool, but not as cool as the alligator.
I liked eating lunch with my dad, mom, sister, and brothers on a blanket outside. I don't get to do that very much and I liked it. It was just like my mom promised!

We are going to another picnic tomorrow so I will write tomorrow about my picnic with my friends. Talk to you then!

My 1st Birthday in Brazil

I have officially had my 1st birthday in Brazil. I turned 9 on October 27th. Since we are in Porto Alegre now, there are 5 missionary boys close by and they all got to come to my sleepover. Everyone brought their light sabers and we played/fought with them. We even dressed up like Jedi's. It was lots of fun and with my great backyard we had plenty of room to play. We even played dodgeball on the balcony and the ball went over the fence and into the neighbors pool a couple of times. We made pizzas. Mom and Dad bought personal pan pizza crusts and we all got to make our own pizzas. It was really cool and we ate lots of pizza. I didn't want a cake so Mom baked a cookie cake and decorated it with M&M's. It was better than any cake we could have bought! I had a great 9th birthday in Brazil.

The Big Move

We are about the move to Porto Alegre. I am excited about some silly things, but I will have a balcony at my house in Porto Alegre. I am also getting a double bed instead of just a single bed like I have now. I am excited about these two things. We are excited to move and can't wait. I am going to miss all my friends here in Campinas. Pedro, Brandon, Ricardo, Gustavo, Rafael, Rafael, Caui and Ana Carolina are some of the friends that I am going to miss.

We are going to drive to Porto Alegre. It is going to take us 4 days to get down there. We are going to stop in Curitiba and then to Florianopolis to visit our friends Malcolm and Dana Philips and then on to PoA. Our house is ready for us and I can't wait to get there. We have already started packing and all of my winter clothes are packed and ready to go. I think we are leaving on September 9th or something. I'll let you know when mom and dad tell me for sure.

I have a new little friend

My new little friend is Gostavo. We met him when me and mom were walking down the street. He is only two and when we walked by his house the first time he was shy and wouldn't even say hello. But when we got down the block, he started yelling, "Menino, vai" which means little boy, come. Well, we waved at him and kept walking to the paderia. While we were there I bought him a chocolate candy and when we walked back by I gave it to him. Then he wanted to talk and play. So, we went home and got some toys and then went back and played with Gostavo. Me, mom and dad went back down there and mom and dad ate cake and drank coffee with Go's parents. Go's dad speaks just a little bit of English so he could help mom and dad when they didn't know a Portuguese word. Me and mom got a chance to go back down to their house and visit for several days in a row for several hours at a time. Go's mom has been off on vacation from work so we have been able to play more but soon she will go back to work and he and I will both go back to school after our July vacation. He is a nice boy and I have had fun sharing rides on his bike and playing in his backyard. I think mom has enjoyed getting help with her Portuguese homework too.

Mrs. Julietta again

Well, I took Mrs. Julietta a copy of the picture of she and I. I wrote on it that it was from her American friend Preston. She loved it and said that she would hang it on her wall. Well, a few weeks later we were at her house and she gave me a stuffed gorilla. She said that she got it for me and it was for me to take home. She was very excited to give me the "mocaquinho". I really like it and have added it to my collection of sleeping buddies. Well, last week mom got Mrs. Julietta a rose plant to go in her garden. It was a rose that was striped red and white. We took it to Mrs. Julietta and she could not believe that we got her a present. She told us that she had never received a gift equal to that. We stopped by today to see it in her garden and it is very beautiful. She in turn gave me a huge shell that I really like. I would pick it up and listen to the ocean everytime we were at her house and she gave it to me today. I love it and had mom clear off a space on the bookshelf for it. I will post a picture as soon as I get one.

Ms. Julietta

Ms. Julietta is my neighbor, she lives at the end of my street. My mom and I just met her last week when we were out walking. Ms. Julietta invited us into her garden to see some of her beautiful flowers and then into her house to see all her indoor plants. She has a beautiful home and we think that she lives alone. She said that we would have to come back sometime for coffee. She was very nice and very excited that we were there. When we asked if we could take pictures with her, she got so excited.
