Grandma's Farm

The past three weeks I was at my grandma's farm in Oklahoma, and I just love going there! It's like a perfect country place surrounded by forests, fields, and there's a creek! Also very perfect for all sorts of wildlife, including birds! We went a lot of places around there too, like the Wildcat Glades Center, and a couple other places. So I went birding a lot, and got lots of yearbirds (bird species this year), and lots of lifebirds (new bird species to me). This was a really exiting experience for me, but the time went so fast it felt more like three days than three weeks. I really wish I could have stayed longer. In the last week my cousin came and I had a lot of fun with her. We played in the creek, we even dared each other to get in up to the shoulders! I did, and she went underwater, even though it was really cold... But the next day I had to go home.
