Subject: Cleaning the Métis House
Today I stayed behind at the Museum and got to see how huge the Museum
Maggie (a girl I knew from the year before) and I helped Corlene
with odd jobs around the Métis (pronounced Meytee) House and tried to clean
up the dead bugs from upstairs. We also tried to stop the Métis House from
smelling so weird. We sprayed out a whole can of Lysol and the funk
remains to this day.
The Métis House was neat. We aired out the 81-year-old
quilt, and did our best to tidy this place up. The Métis family were said to
be very skilled at wagon making, and hunting. The house was quite elegant
for that time.
the end was one of the hardest days, and also one of the most exiting.
Marco's mom called and says she wants to take me out on my lunch break
I will also be back in the field, too. I can't wait.
