I went home to Clifton’s house with him and Caleb on the bus. I first played hockey and scored. Then Caleb and I faced off on the Playstation. I ran on the treadmill to burn some calories. After that I read the Lost Hero and munched on a fudge cookie. I was a superstar playing wiffleball against Caleb and Clifton. I met Bluin the big blue bear, Clifton’s stuffed animal like me. I layed down some funky tunes on the piano. I also met all-star hockey defenseman Zdeno Chara and went to outer space. To end my day I played bongos and pool.
We say good-bye with a VoiceThread.
I went home with Grant and his Mom took lots of pictures. She made the pictures into a book and everyone in class enjoyed reading it together. Grant’s Mom said I could send it home to my friends back home in Mrs. Wyatt’s class for us to keep! Cool beans! Thanks Grant!
Let’s take a look at it so you can see my adventure.
Here’s a report from Claire and her family on the visit by Davo to their home this week.
I have to say, Davo was a delightful guest. He was treated to a simple afternoon of playing around in the yard and joined us for our first cookout/eat out of the year… in March (!)
We trekked around looking for what’s blooming in the woods and found some rogue crocus and some johnny jump ups.
He’s a big fan of the tire swing (Claire held him tight), but we think he likes swings in general. We found him waiting for a push.
We wish him well in his journeys. We look forward to following his exploits online and hope he continues to have fun!

I had a wonderful time in Ohio and now I’m making a couple of stops in Massachusetts. That’s in the northeastern part of the United States. The children in Mrs. Poulin’s Kindergarten class were excited to find me in their mailbox on Monday morning. I’ll be moving on again at the end of this week.
I know Mrs. Poulin was sorry I never made it to the largest St. Patricks Day Parade with her, but what she didn’t know was I was right there on the other side of the street! I’d decided to stop by on my own since the mailman couldn’t get me to the school in time. Here’s a picture that Mrs. Poulin took of Mr. Poulin and their daughter Heather. The parade was just grand!
I am spending the night with one of my new friends Grant, so I’ll have lots more to talk about in my next post. I am happy to meet so many new friends and everyone treats me very nicely. Here is a picture of me with my new friend Grant. He made me a new collar of colorful beads.Boy is it warm here. Today the temperature was well over 80F and that is record heat for March in this area! The new school garden will be ready for planting in no time but for now we are planting seeds of friendship!
Hello. This is me and my new friend Libby. I spent the night at her house last night.
While Libby did her homework, I hung out in her room and I found a sleeping cat! I wanted to meet the cat so badly; so I decided to wake her up! Once she was more awake, we talked about ourselves. I discovered her name is Naavah (pronounced: Nah-vah) and that she once lived outside and was starving. Then Libby’s family found her and asked her to live with them. I also discovered we are both carnivores.
I got up early this morning and made myself a cup of coffee and sat by the fire. I bet you didn’t think Tasmanian Devils drink coffee!? Anyway, I read about Spirit Bears in a nature magazine Libby lent to me. Did you know that the Spirit Bear lives in a Canadian rain forest on the West Coast? They are white because where they live was once covered in ice and their white fur once helped them to blend in. They are a rare bear. Hahaha, that rhymes!
I went home with Joren my second night in Ohio. When we first left school, we had to walk out to the bus in the rain. It wasn’t too bad though, because Joren kept me dry under this big red and white umbrella. Usually Ohio has snow in the winter, but this winter, its been almost all rain. After dinner, Joren and I went to play tennis with his mom, dad and brother.
My friends from room 17 did a good job reading my blog! They knew how much fun I always have visiting with their stuffed animals. Rory took me home for my first night. I played with his animals, and then relaxed while Rory was reading Son of Neptune. Rory loves to read!
Well, I was certainly glad when I made it to room 17. The students had been waiting for me, not knowing what to expect. Their teacher kept calling me the “surprise visitor from Tasmania”. My first stop with the class was to the library. I had perfect timing. They were going to read my blog to learn more about me!
Here we are. The photo is a little blurry.
As part of my visit to Washington, I got to go home with Andrew, a kindergarten Bulldog Reader! He took me to Seattle to see some of the sites there! We thought about going up the Space Needle, but I’m afraid of heights, so I said, “No, thank you!”
I had a fun time with the Bulldog Readers in Washington. Now I’m on my way back to the east coast to visit some new students!
First we went to the Seattle Center, where the Seattle Space Needle is located. you can see it in the background. The Space Needle was built for the 1962 World’s Fair.
Then we went to the Pike Place Market. I got to see all the wonderful fresh food and flower vendors there. It gets really crowded with tourists!
All that walking around made us thirsty, so Andrew took me to the original Starbucks Coffee shop at the Pike Place Market. I had some hot chocolate because I was a little chilly!
