    Today I passed out paper bags to most of the neighborhood kids and explained to them that I was collecting candy wrapper to be recycled. I hope that the turn out is good! I will let you know how it goes!

    It was a very cold day and it wasn't very nice. We have a big hill and I walked around with my mom. I will see you all tomorrow!

    Yesterday night, we got this cool new box. It is basically where you put all of your candy wrappers and you ship them to get recycled. I can't wait to tell all of the neighborhood kids this!

    Today was a sunny, but cold day. It was one of those days that the sun was out, but it was cold. You just wanted to curl up by the fire with a warm cup of tea.

    Today it was raining in Anacortes. I always love it when it rains and the leaves are so pretty. It is always so peaceful to just walk around and feel the rain and see all of the different shapes and sizes of the raindrops on your jacket.

    I spent an hour and forty-five minutes of bike riding with my friends. I loved seeing the sun through the trees and all of the leaves, so many different colors and shapes.

    We just watched another Down to Earth. We learned that people are saving seeds of potatoes all over the world in case there is an earthquake or something and our food supply gets cut off. This is very interesting and helpful.

    I learned that Jay Inslee got 50 members to represent helping orcas and more than 18,000 written public comments on how to help the orcas. I also learned that the goal is to get up to 84 orcas by the next decade. I think that is very sad to think. That means only one new orca per year, this is sad because we want more than that.
