LOOK WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE TURTLE LADY VISITS!
Looking Forward to Another Wonder-filled Year!!! Thanks so much!!
2010
Check back for some exciting fall events!!!

SEPTEMBER~OCTOBER~NOVEMBER


WE DO LOVE THE FALL! 
Many teachers prefer to have the Turtle Lady visit
when school starts in the fall! 
What a great way for children to learn that
school is a wonderful place to be!

Our classroom adventures this fall will take us to 
Sunshine Preschool in Sunbury,  Schultz Elementary in Delaware,
  Columbus Academy, Cool Creek Nature Center in Carmel Indiana,
  Peace United Methodist Preschool, Noble Academy, Agudas Achim,
Wesley Glen, St Margaret of Cortona Preschool,
Heritage House in Bexley, Linworth Church, St Joseph's Montessori,
 London Elementary, 4 Home-school groups,
lots of birthday parties
and some older friends at Wesley Glen,
Yorkland Park and the Forum at Knightsbridge.  
SCOUTING EVENTS AT BARRINGTON, TREMONT, AND
GREENSVIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

@@@@@@@@@
*****************
WE LOVE THE WEEKENDS IN THE FALL!
WHEN THE ANIMALS ARE NOT TOSSING THE FOOTBALL AROUND, OR RAKING LEAVES,  THEY ARE AT
COMPANY PICNICS, OX ROASTS,
HARVEST FESTIVALS, SUKKOK GATHERINGS,
FALL CHURCH GATHERINGS, AND
TRICK OR TURTLE EVENTS.

*********TURTLE RACES**********
Come and visit us at the     
DELAWARE COUNTY FAIR!
Sunday, September 19th, 2010

One of our favorite public events each year is visiting with friends at the HOMESTEAD HARVEST EVENT!
This year the event will be on
Saturday, October 9th and Sunday, October 10th. 
My friends at Homestead Park do a wonderful job making this one of the best family events ever!  SO MANY COOL THINGS HAPPENING THERE FOR YOUR FAMILY!
 We will be there from 12:30-4:30 on Saturday,
and from 1:00-5:00 on Sunday!

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

SO ~AFTER A SEASON OF FUN IN THE SUN
AND ENJOYING WHAT FALL HAS TO BRING,
WE START TO WIND DOWN AND
PREPARE FOR A LONG WINTER'S NAP! 
BUT NOT BEFORE WE CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS AT HOLIDAY OFFICE PARTIES!
MOST OF THE TURTLES
HIBERNATE UNTIL MARCH. 
@@@@@@@@

THE ANIMALS WHO DO NOT HIBERNATE ALL WINTER SPEND THE COLDER MONTHS
LEARNING NEW TRICKS, READING BOOKS,
 AND BRUSHING UP ON THEIR
 LANGUAGE SKILLS,
THAT IS WHY MANY OF THE TURTLE LADY
ANIMALS ARE FLUENT IN OTHER LANGUAGES AND
SKILLED IN SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS. 
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@


THIS TURTLE IS FLUENT IN THREE LANGUAGES!
(JUST TRYING TO SEE IF PEOPLE
REALLY READ ALL THIS STUFF...) AND I STILL HAVE A LITTLE SPACE ON THIS PAGE!

  

   

Do You See Your Town Or
City On This List? 
The turtles and I have been to
3 states and over a 
bajillion different places! 
A  bajillion is a number
more than bunches,
but not as big as the
national deficit.
