Ducky was invited to go on a trip to New Zealand (where is that!!) – with a few stops in between. We’ll have to find out later if Ducky enjoyed the trip!!
Ducky went for a plane ride from Wayland, Massachusetts to Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was less tiring and more fun than flying alone. Ducky felt really small at the airport, the planes were sooooo big. In the plane sometimes Ducky could see land and other times could see just clouds. Maybe some of Ducky’s friends were playing in the water below, that’s Lake Erie.
After a car ride to the the farm in Stanchfield, Minnesota, Ducky saw the pumpkin patch. It was cold but there were so many pumpkins!! Ducky was glad that she could sit on a pumpkin and not in the snow!
History Lesson #1: It was just a short way to a trail from the American Revolution in Concord – some men rode down the trail at midnight (or so the story goes). Ducky saw the names of Dawes, Revere and Prescott. We know Revere is “Paul Revere” but who are the other guys? We also saw the Old North Bridge and the Minuteman Statue.
History Lesson #2: Then we went down the road to Louisa May Alcott’s house – she wrote the stories “Little Women” and “Little Men”.
The next lesson was how to stain steps…even with the fun stuff, chores need to be done. Thank you for letting Ducky help!!
One weekend, some of Duck’s Iowa relatives came to the Boston area to visit their son at Tufts University. Ducky even went to a football game (and sat behind the LOUD band) and went out to dinner!
Ducky didn’t get lost, she was just busy doing fun stuff. It all started with a shopping trip near the big city. Ducky played a game by hiding in the flowers, and then was surprised about how small the John Deere tractors are (there are bigger ones but not that Ducky saw).
in my travels i have been put to work….
Thanks for the blog from Blake’s ducky! We haven’t had any other ducks in Maine. We would like to place a pin on the map, but would like to know the town. If you see this post, please reply back. Thanks, Mr. Ebert and 2nd Grade.
