This week wasn’t the same old week for the older students. On Monday and Tuesday the middle school kids from the district gathered (by airplanes) in Holy Cross for a volleyball clinic/tournament. From Wednesday to Friday the district high schoolers came to Grayling and we hosted a volleyball clinic/tournament. There were 26 extra high school kids here (and their chaperones) playing volleyball by day and sleeping in classrooms by night. Our school cook, Eleanor, was extra busy feeding them and many village folks found their way to the gym for the evening games. Luckily all the visitors made it here and back home before the weather closed in.
It’s dark now in the morning when we come to school and still dark when the kids arrive. Bonnie has had to change the time of her class weather observations until it’s light enough to see. And there’s lots to see down by the river.
Ice started coming down the river last week and with the colder temperatures there’s been more and more each day. Seeing it is pretty cool, watching it is better, but hearing it is the best. Take a look at this…
Bonnie convinced Hans it would be worth it to upgrade this blog site to include video–dragging him kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Hope you enjoy it! (The sound is a bit distorted, so we’ll see if we can figure that out….)
There’s more of the white stuff coming down as I type. I’m heading home now to join Hans for a bowl of chili.
