The Jane Blog

By Jane Murr

We saw a caterpillar. He was green. He was eating a leaf.

We saw a dead butterfly. We picked it up and kept it. We pulled out its tongue and looked at it. Our tongues are longer than the butterfly’s. Tootsie’s tongue is longer than ours and the butterfly’s, but butterflies have black tongues. We looked at the white spots on the orange and black butterfly. It was a monarch butterfly. They are so pretty and I wish I could watch one fly around in a jar. I would put water in the jar and I would let it go if I saw another butterfly I think is its mommy or daddy. The butterfly dust on our hands was purple and a little sparkly.

We saw a tractor that pooped out hay. We saw 21 hays that the tractor pooped out.

We dug for dinosaur bones. It was fun because we were scientists digging up dinosaur fossils and we got to pick them up and put them in a pile.

We saw Prairie Chickens. They were my favorite!

We watched drummers sing—it was just screaming, actually. It was too loud for me. I ate all my soup so I could have some cake.

When I get home, I’m going to have an applesauce carrot cake for my friend party. Here are the things you’ll need to make the cake, Mommy:

  • sugar,
  • butter,
  • eggs,
  • applesauce,
  • carrots,
  • flour,
  • applesauce icing.

There are one hundred mosquitoes outside our tent! Good thing we have a tent: if we were sleeping outside, we would get eaten alive!

    I would also love to see a tractor that poops out hay! I have, however, seen a machine that poops out concrete garden edging. It was fun. I would really like your applesauce carrot cake recipe, please.

    Way to go, Jane! I think you have a great future in blogging (and other things, to be sure).

    Jane, you are a marvelous writer. Luke especially liked the part about digging for dinosaur bones. 🙂
