Dear Madeline,
I am seven now. We have Praying Mantises. And we have ladybugs too! It is spring in Craig, Colorado. Tate lost her first tooth. I went to the dentist in Glenwood and got one tooth pulled on the bottom it didn’t hurt much and my lips were puffy! The second time I went to the dentist it hurt a lot and my lips were puffy again.
