*SENTENCE COMBINATION*

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important writing skill. There are many ways to do this. Try to combine the following three sentences. Do not use a semi-colon.

Sentence 1: Both June and July were very wet this year.
Sentence 2: With so much moisture around, it’s not surprising that there are also a lot of mosquitoes.
Sentence 3: I am walking around in a fog of mosquito repellent these days.

I am walking around in a fog of mosquito repellent these days, since both June and July were very wet this year it isn't surprising that there are a lot of mosquitoes.

Well done, Brad!

McLean, note that your sentence has a comma splice.
