Baturday News is a weekly blog written by Rachael, a middle school student and Save Lucy volunteer. Rachael’s interest in bats was sparked by the big brown bats that used the outside of her former home for a winter roost. Her family cheerfully hosted the wild colony for years.
Hi everyone! I am sooooo happy that school is out! I can sleep late now. YES!!!!!!!! I know that I am not the only one happy that school is out for the summer. One special little bat shared one of his diary entries with us. It’s been a while, but I do believe you all know Brownie. Well, here it is.
Brownie’s Diary 6/19/15
Hi! I am so happy this night! My bat school is finally out! I also heard that the human school got out today too. That is exciting. It’s finally summer vacation. And my mom said I could celebrate with my friends for the rest of the night! We are going to go to the lake first. And then we are going to swim. I love swimming! After that we are going to have some snacks. Maybe we’ll eat some moths! Then we are going to watch a lot of movies and go to bed. It will be fun. Oh, my friends are here; I have to go.
I hope everyone has a great summer! Don’t forget to get outside and look for bats. We finally saw one for the first time since we moved to our new house. I was really missing the bats, so I’m very, very happy that we saw one flying around. There were a lot of yummy bugs flying around, so I think my new friend had a nice feast!
