Pigeon Wants to go Back to Hawaii

Pigeon just got back from a vacation to Hawaii. He loved it very much and really wants to go back! Here he is inside of a submarine in Pearl Harbor...
Pigeon loves to read and knows you can learn a lot from books! Here he is reading up on his Hawaiin cousins... Remember to please bring me a picture of yourself reading over the summer. I will be creating a display with these photos. Can you guess whose picture will be in the display?

One of the most memorable places that pigeon visited was Pearl Harbor. We have many books about the attack on Pearl Harbor in the Taylor library.One of the very special things we were able to do while on Maui was take a snorkeling trip. Pigeon really wanted to drive the boat, and we let him with a little help from Anna. Here they are driving a boat to Molokini off the coast of Maui.

Pigeon had an amazing vacation! Have you gone anywhere special this summer? I hope you're having a wonderul time and I can't wait to see you all in August.
