Star of the week-Elena

My name is Elena and I am 8 years old.

I love reptiles and bugs!  This tarantula came to my birthday party.

I have two crested geckos named Snowflake and Vega, and they had a baby.

I also have a dog named Penny.  We think she is a basenji. FullSizeRender 2.jpg
I have 2 dads, 2 moms, 3 brothers, and a sister and 7 cousins because I was adopted.  I flew on a plane to Sacramento when I was 5 days old.  This is my brother Jonah and sister Maddie.

One of my favorite things to do is to catch lizards at my Grammie’s house.  I have caught more than 30 western fence lizards.  This one is a baby.
I also like to cook and do arts and crafts.  I am a great baker and drawer.

Someday I’d like to visit Hawaii to swim with dolphins.  I hope I don’t see any sharks!


  1. Elena,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Congratulations on now being 8 years-old. I love Hawaii. We are going there as a family this summer and it will be Michael's first trip there. He is very excited. You should ask him about it. Have you read the Junie B. Jones book Alo-ha-ha? It is pretty funny and all about Hawaii. You should check it out.

    Mr. Wood

  2. Happy happy birthday, Elena!
    I love how brave you are with bugs and creatures! It's like you have a magical power :) You ARE an awesome baker- I remember the delicious cake you made! Yum! I can't wait to hear about your adventures in Hawaii with your family.

  3. Happy Birthday Elena,
    It is cool that you have caught over 30 western fence lizards. Have you caught any other types of lizards before? Do you like to play board games with your family? My favorite one is Monopoly. What other types of bugs and reptiles came to your birthday party?
    Your friend,

  4. Dear Elena,
    I have a dog named Penny also.Do you have three dogs?

  5. Dear Elena,
    I have a dog named Penny also. Do you have three dogs. Michael
