Adventure All Around!

August 3, 2011

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and August is officially here! Cherry-Ot told me that on this day in 1492, Christopher Columbus set sail from Spain with three ships called the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.

Do you know about Christopher Columbus? He’s a famous Italian explorer who was trying to sail to Asia to find a new trade route, but his first voyage ended up taking him to an island in the Bahamas! He made other voyages after that, and he explored the coasts of the Americas. He had a lot of adventures.

I think that whenever you face the unknown, you’re on an adventure, whether it’s sailing to a far off land like Christopher Columbus, starting the school year with a different class and teacher, and even coming to a hospital like McPopper Children’s Hospital. Whenever you’re in a new place, doing new things, and meeting new people, it’s an adventure. Life is an adventure!

So try to think about your own adventures. Some are behind you, and some are ahead of you. But there’s always adventure in store (especially when you read Hospital Critterz: The Prairie Pet)! And in the words of Kwon Do, “Who knows when, where, why, or how? Today’s adventure starts right now!”

And don’t forget…have a critterrific day!
