October 28th, 2016

So Mom found herself a different job. She works at the same place that her sister does, but in a different building. She is learning to operate a an embroidery machine. It is big, fancy, and possibly older that she is.
Last night, we forgot to write an entry. So it’s actually really the day of, and Mom is extra tired. So we’re going to post this and then write next week’s. I hope you’re all having a great day!

We have had a pretty quiet week around here. It’s been mostly filled with babysitting Graham and Mom’s work. Today Oliver, Graham, Mom, and I went for a walk!

Mom wanted to take a picture of the New England aster, but Oliver said that she ought to take a picture of him instead! (A while back, Mom found an app called iNaturalist. It’s sort of a catalog of all the natural things, allowing people to see where you can find cool things outside. Mom really only gets time outside when she goes for a walk, so we try to take a picture of something each time!)
I’m pretty tired, so I think I’m going to encourage Mom to go to bed.

Hello everybody! How are you? Things are all right here. Fall has arrived here in Wisconsin. There is a frost advisory for tonight, and it’s already just 41 degrees F! Mom and I don’t mind the cold, so it’s all right.
Mom has to work for the rest of the week. She had to work all morning and afternoon and then babysit Graham in the later afternoon. I’d like to write a lot today, but she says that she wants to go to bed. Today we will share a picture of Oliver! We’ll write a longer entry next week!

Hello, everybody!! How are you? We’re all right! Mom took Oliver, Graham, and I for a walk a few days ago. We found something that we wanted to show you!

This is a wooly bear caterpillar. It will become an Isabella Tiger Moth. It is crossing the road to find a safe place to spend the winter. It will overwinter as a caterpillar and emerges in the spring to become a pupa and then a moth. Wikipedia says that you can find wooly bear caterpillars all over the world, including the Artic. But in the Artic, the summer when the caterpillar eats to become a moth, is very short. So it eats, refreezes itself, and rethaws the next spring. They can do that up to fourteen times! But after it becomes a moth, it only lives a few days to find a mate!
I liked going on a walk. I sat in the bottom of the stroller, and we walked to the petting zoo and back. Graham didn’t like his stroller before, so we hadn’t gone. But he seems not to mind it too much now. I hope we get to go again soon!
