Another Ohio Home Visit

Hello.  This is me and my new friend Libby.  I spent the night at her house last night.




Libby and Mr. Davo enjoying some sunshine.


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.


Naavah is finally waking up

 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!

Fun in Ohio

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.

Visiting Ohio

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.

I am getting to know my new friends!
