I'm a pro

When it comes to making maple syrup, I know more than anybody in my family. I went on a school trip to the Outdoor Ed Center last year and learned all about how to extract maple syrup from a tree.

There are different kinds of trees in our yard. It is difficult to tell some of them from maple trees when the trees have no leaves. I told mom and dad that the bark of maple trees came off easily. That's how you could tell there are maple. They were very impressed. Mom was surprised that I knew how to use a hand drill. At the Outdoor Ed Center, each student got to drill a hole on a tree and put a tap in.

It is cool that there are things I know more about than my parents do.
