There were many structures that the Sonoran Desert People’s ancestors built a long time ago. There were many small and regular houses and there was one called the ‘Big House.’ The Big House is where the people gathered if they needed a meeting or to get together. All of the houses were made out of a claymud substance.
Have you ever stayed in a wolf’s lodge with all the fun under one roof? Well, I have—it was called the Great Wolf Lodge. I went just before New Year’s for two days, Dec. 28 and 29, 2019.

I read a book called “Douglas, You Need Glasses!” It was written by Ged Adamson and published by Random House. Douglas is a dog with very bad eyesight. His eyesight is so bad that he chases a leaf thinking it is a squirrel. He also does not see the warning sign and hewalks through wet cement.
Nancy is Douglas’ owner and she takes him for an eye exam. Douglas goes through one whole cabinet of glasses and finally finds the perfect pair. After he puts on the glasses, Douglas can see things that he couldn’t see before.
