“Being able to put a smile on someone’s face and brighten their day, just by giving them a hug and taking a picture,” is what the one and only Wilbur the Wildcat says is the best part of being Wilbur. The University of Arizona’s mascot will be celebrating his 56th birthday this year.

Wilbur says, “After being chosen, we have three-times-a-week weight training sessions, cardio sessions and one-armed push-up training. I also had to learn all of Wilbur’s moves, plus practicing with Wilma.”

The Disney On Ice show, Worlds of Enchantment, came to Tucson in October. It was very enchanting indeed because it had classics like Cars, The Little Mermaid, Toy Story and more. I had the opportunity to attend a media event to help kick

off the first show! A group of local Tucson elementary kids were there to attend a reading from the book Cars, take pictures and talk to two ice skaters from the show followed by a pizza party. This got the kids so excited and pumped to see the show!

Some of you might not know who Alex Naddour is, but our troop from Queen Creek does. Naddour lives in Queen Creek just like us.

     We were in the middle of earning our "Staying Fit" badge when we heard that Naddour was going to be at the Queen Creek Library before he left for the Olympic Games in Rio. We followed him through the Olympics. He just happened to win a bronze medal on the pommel horse!

College football is starting soon! For 2015-16, the National Championship Game was held in Phoenix. Earlier this year I took a trip with my mom, dad and brother, Chase, to the Phoenix Convention Center to be a part of Playoff Fan Central. The Playoff Fan Central is a multi-day fan festival that gives lots of kids an opportunity to experience the College Football Playoff National Championship. There were bands, cheerleaders, interactive photo booths and sports games. My brother and I got to play at different games.
