Before bedtime, our mom read to us about an exotic place called Göbekli Tepe. It is a very special place, full of ancient temple remains, discovered in the country of Turkey. Scientists say that these mysterious ruins are over 11,000 years old!!! Its strange name means "Navel of the World", or, as I like to call it, "Bellybutton on a Hill".
Waldorf and I could barely sleep. We tried to imagine who built it and why. I could tell that Waldorf even dreamt about those ancient ruins: his paws were twitching as if they were digging and digging, looking for long lost treasures...
The next day we decided we would make a great team of archaeologists. We went in the back yard and did our own digging- no pretending. We found 1 bottle, 2 gross pieces of plastic, one rock that sparkles, and my mom's tulip bulbs.
What is an archaeologist? An archaeologist is a person that digs up, or excavates, ancient places, fossils, or things to learn about history.
I think we're well on our way to digging up the next ancient temple discovery.
