This year I had the pleasure of participating in the 2nd Annual Wizard Run. The run first took place in 2018 in Joplin, Missouri. The run is 5K, which is equal to three miles. There is a 1 Mile Fun Run you can do as well.

When you register you can choose one of four packages; Broomstick, Phoenix, Owl or Crest. You can also pick one of four colors. I chose the Crest and my dad picked the Broomstick. My shirt was green and his was red. Along with the shirt you receive a custom wand, a medal and a number bib.

 Over the quarantine time period I’ve been able to do things I was too busy to do before, such as making new recipes that previously took too much time to complete, learning fun new hairstyles, and picking up an old ukulele I hadn’t touched in years. I was also able to progress in several piano songs I had been working on for a while, and I’ve already started to finish up some cute DIY presents for my family’s birthdays!

Among those participating in the parade were other Girl Scouts in her troop and friends. The surprise parade was for Emaline’s 8th birthday. Emaline attends Sam Hughes Elementary.

 Recently I visited the Casa Grande Ruins National Park with my Girl Scout Troop. It was very fun and the sites were amazing.

There were many structures that the Sonoran Desert People’s ancestors built a long time ago. There were many small and regular houses and there was one called the ‘Big House.’ The Big House is where the people gathered if they needed a meeting or to get together. All of the houses were made out of a claymud substance.

 Have you ever stayed in a wolf’s lodge with all the fun under one roof? Well, I have—it was called the Great Wolf Lodge. I went just before New Year’s for two days, Dec. 28 and 29, 2019. There are other locations for the lodge in states such as California, Texas and Washington. I went to the one in Scottsdale at Talking Stick.
