gorillasGorillas are members of the great ape family. Gorillas live in Africa. Some live in the mountains. Others live in the forests, swamps and lowlands. Gorillas eat ants, stems, snails, insects and leaves.

Gorillas can use a twig to fish for ants. Gorillas also use smells to silently warn other gorillas of danger.

Did you know that baby gorillas don’t crawl until they are two months old?

lightningTwo kids named Katy and Jack and their dog Chase were in their apartment with their mom, Sarah. The lightning flashed. Chase scratched Katy and Jack really bad.

Their mom gasped and she was so disappointed with Chase. Their mom said to Chase, “You are a bad dog. Go to your room.”

“Are you okay?” asked their mom. “Yes,” said Jack and Katy. “Okay, let’s watch a movie called Aladdin and then we will eat dinner.”

When the movie ended, they ate pizza and then they went to bed with Chase.

tornado-origOne day I went to watch the news. I saw that a tornado was coming. So we went to my mom’s car and drove to visit my dad’s friend.

Three hours later we went back home and then we saw that a tree had fallen on the roof of our house! We called the builders and they said they would fix it.

We had to live in a hotel. We get to move back in our house on October 9. We are very happy.
