Bats πŸ¦‡!!! Post for Homeschoolers!

Baby vampire bat! (Image credit: hairyleggedvampire.jpg)

1. All bats are mammals.

2. Bats are nocturnal, a word that means sleep at day, and are awake at night!

3. Bats can fly better than birds 🐦, because of their long spread-out digits covered with a thin membrane! The membrane in the wings is called patagium.

4. Bats have sort of a bad reputation to some people. It would mean a lot to me if you told your friends about these facts: it could change their minds!

5. Bats urinate and defecate while in flight, which means they pee and poo πŸ’© in flight! 🀒

6. This pic is going to be of a vampire bat! No, don’t be afraid! The mini blood-suckers are not everywhere!! They are just in some places. Now, for the picture!

Many peeps hate (and maybe even are scared of) bats. But, hopefully, this blogpost will change the minds of bat haters and people scared of bats. Just remember one thing: don’t be afraid of them all! If a vampire bat saw this:

They would say:

Insects!

Let me tell you a story…

A while ago, we were in the Cotswolds housesitting. (See my blog about the Cotswolds.) We looked after a cat. And the cat was indoor-outdoor. One night, the cat brought my dad a surprise… a not-at-all bloody, dead bat!

The next morning, I awoke to instantly inspect it, with a magnifying glass πŸ”!

This blogpost was really fun, and it took me a while so I hope you liked it!

See ‘ya, Bye πŸ‘‹πŸ»!

Halloween Visit with Uncle Kenny πŸ‘±πŸ»β€β™‚️

You can see my sneakers, but the costume didn’t have shoes!

My Uncle Kenny is pretty crazy 😜 about Halloween πŸŽƒ. He makes his driveway a spooky HAUNTED HOUSE. And I admit, it was very scary. In fact, it was so scary it was fun!

Here is the haunted house in the daytime:

Why was it the best Halloween ever?

1. I got to help! I scared little kids when they walked by me.

2. I got to finally trick-or-treat for the first time!

3. I got to do false-screams, (screams that repeat every 30 seconds, about. If someone hears someone scream, they may run away, not wanting to be scared too, or join the party!)

4. I got to see my Uncle Kenny, my Aunt Yolanda, my cousins Jhase, Deven, and Olivia! And my uncle’s first wife came too, Aunt Gale. She attacked me with kisses 😽.

5. I always new I had minor Arachnophobia, but apparently my fear of spiders applies to fake spiders that have motion sensors so they know when you pass by. (I finally figured out they only saw your feet and ankles, so all I had to do was jump up and they didn’t see me! Or, I just run by!)

6. I saw a little kid, about 3 or 4, and he was just passing by my hiding spot (my hiding spot is behind a clown that has a sign on it: free hugz! With blood stains on it. The clown would start saying nice stuff, and then it would lean forward at you! He also had a motion sensor. I jumped out and made a hiss 😾 before the clown said anything to a by-passer.) I lunged out, barely touching the kid, making scary fingers…

and hissing. The little kid froze, and ran to the exit of the haunted house. I watched carefully for him to leave, then chuckled.

All Fun and Games!!

They let me help with lots of scaring, but my Uncle always goes all out, so that was fun.

My Uncle’s front yard!!

Funny Fact!

One of the kids my mom saw (she was trying…

to draw people into the tornado of terror haunted house!) was walking up the driveway. He turned, and “noped” right out of there!!

End of Funny Fact!

This was a very, very, very, don’t go away, I have at least ten more very’s to go… very, very…

fun blogpost to write and make!

Oh, before I go…

This is my step-cousin:

Well, see you later!

Bye πŸ‘‹πŸ»!

Croatia πŸ‡­πŸ‡· and My New BFFs!!

Split, Croatia is a cool place, filled with fun stuff right outside your door πŸšͺ!

We are staying in a fun apartment that has a pizza place right downstairs!

Those two people next to me (I’m in the middle) are my new best friends. They are an American family traveling like we are. We met them here in Croatia. Isn’t that cool?!?

Look at the person on the left. That is Nynka. The one on the right is Maria. They are super nice and funny!

They are sisters, but we pretend I’m their cousin. Nynka still wants me to be their sister! I kinda like it!

This picture is of me after running uphill for about one minute. (I like to pretend I’m athletic, but I’m sorta lazy too. The Queen πŸ‘‘ of whatever, just like cats!)

I taught them how to make a fortune teller, and they tried it, and I believe they enjoyed the craft-lessons!

Here is a sword in glass from a museum. My friends went to the museum and invited us to join, so we did! It was free, too!

The gnocchi must die!!!

I stayed at their house and we made gnocchi. My parents came later for dinner, so we all ate together! They were yummy πŸ˜‹!

Most of the pictures there are just of us having fun together.

But this one…

is of us doing GLAMOUR POSE! in the picture. However, even though Nynka (the one on your right) didn’t do the fishy-glam pose, her glamour pose is probably the most glamorous and the least fish-girl.

I’m going to miss my friends when they leave next week, but we have plans to meet in Venice, Italy in the spring, which is pretty cool.

I liked making this blogpost about my awesome friends. Bye!

STEAMTeam5 Chronicles: Evelyn Engineer and the Lighting Treasure πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ”§

Hey! My Dad has a brand new book out called Evelyn Engineer and the Lighting Treasure! Here’s a link for the Kindle. And here’s a link for the print.

It’s a new kind called the Chronicles, so it’s not a main, series book. It’s a book that focuses on the character, Evelyn Engineer!

Things I like about the book:

I like that it’s about my favorite character, Evelyn! She makes lots of cool things!

It’s very fast-paced!

And it’s really fun to read!

Now those are some great things somebody would be looking for in a book, hmm?

Here’s a picture of the book: my dad illustrated it!

My blogposts have been a little short, I admit, but I know I really need to catch up! So bye for now, but I’ll be working on another super soon!!

STEAMTeam5 Mystery at MakerSpace! A Great Book

Hey! Remember my blog about STEAMTeam5? Well this is about the second book in the series!

Some thing I like about it are:

It’s a fast-paced, page-turner!

It is a book in a series, (which I really like.)

The girls in the series are amazing role models!

And last but definitely not least, it gets girls excited πŸ˜† for science πŸ§ͺ!!!

Some pretty good things about a book, huh?

Here’s a picture of the book:

Here’s a link to Steamteam5.com!

You can get it on amazon… Kindle or Paperback. It’ll make an AMAZING holiday gift!

Sorry that was one of my smaller posts, but I’ve got zillions of ideas coming!

Bye bye bye, butterfly πŸ¦‹!

Glasses and Zenni

Hey! I told you I would talk about my glasses at the end of the C’alma blogpost.

Ok, for the introduction:

Are you familiar with Zenni? They made my dad’s glasses:The ones on the left are Dad’s. The ones on the right are mine.

Here’s a link to Zenni. Zenni is an online store to get prescription glasses for the cheap, starting at about $20. If you know anyone who needs glasses or may need them in the future based on what you know about them, you could tell them about Zenni… or me, preferably 😏😏.

In my case, here’s how they can help:

By the way, that’s my mom, Globalkristen.com!

That’s all… for now, muahahahah!
