Homeschool Kids- Joel's Journal

Joel with a butterfly net

By Joel, Sydney, NSW

I am 11 years old. I like playing games with balls. I like playing with paper planes and I have made some really good ones.

I like catching butterflies. I have caught the biggest butterfly in Sydney. I made my own net.
