In school Crew read a story about John Silver, a pigeon, who delivered messages for the military. The story told about this pigeon's bravery. Even though he had several bullet wounds and his leg was hanging on by one ligament, John Silver flew the 25 miles to deliver his important message and ended up saving many lives. The story mentioned that John Silver was on display at the National Air Force Museum. When Crew found out we were going to Ohio, he wanted to go to the museum so he could see this pigeon.
Don't all kids want to be astronauts when they grow up? I know I did but I also wanted to be a cowgirl too. Maybe I should've stuck with one of those. Crew and Gracie have always been really interested in the solar system. Sometimes I think I might go crazy if I have to hear any more facts about outer space or anything in it!
