The Tour de France!
July 16, 2012
I've been watching this really cool bike race on TV for the past couple of weeks. It's called the Tour de France, which means the tour of France. The reason it's called that is because the bike riders race all over the country of France. The cyclists, as they are called, are actually professionals who ride bikes for a living. That must be so cool! They get to travel the world and ride a bike for their job!
Each day they race about 100 miles in all kinds of weather. No matter if it's raining or the temperatures are above 100 degrees, they will still ride. Some days they even end up riding in the snow because they are so high up in the mountains, the French Alps and the Pyrenees (pronounced Peer-ah-knees) mountains.
What's the furthest you've ever ridden your bike? I usually only take short trips, like to the store and stuff, so I would have to ride A LOT to get as good as the cyclists in the Tour, (that's what they call it for short.)
Keep on ridin'!
My own fishin' pole: I got it!
July 11, 2012
I am so going fishing on Saturday with my brand new fishing pole! There are so many kinds of fishing poles, but I picked mine because it is small like me and red – my fave color! This time we are going to fish on a small river instead of a lake. I hope I see some other cool critters, like turtles and snails.
I have to dig for worms for my bait, have you ever done that? You get dirty but they’re just wiggly; they don’t do anything to you, like bite you or anything. If you do dig for worms for bait when you go fishing, don’t forget to poke air holes in the top of your container so they can breathe!

2012 Class of Huggable Heroes®
July 09, 2012
Have you heard of the Huggable Heroes program? Every year, Build-A-Bear Workshop honors 10 kids from the United States and Canada that are doing amazing things for their communities! This year, there are FIFTEEN Huggable Heroes! They are super incredible kids and the 2012 Class of Huggable Heroes is no different.
Altogether, this year’s class has raised almost $1.4 million for our worldwide community! They have provided shoes for the homeless, they have recycled eye glasses, they have made cupcakes to raise funds to assist children with cancer! There are so many more things they’ve done to help. They really are amazing!
All of this help starts with something small. Think of one small thing you can do to help someone you know! It will make their day!
