Subject: Fossil Finder Day
Today was Fossil
Finder Day. I was in charge of the games and got to give all the kids candy.
also was finalizing the trip to Glacier National Park. I will be there for two
days. Becca let me miss work so I can be there on Monday and she also let me use
her binoculars and her Geology book for a few days, too.
am going to go do pottery with Dulce, who was face painting today.
also got to help the visitors identify items that they brought in. We had a dino
fossil exhibit in the schoolhouse and a guy with a collection of arrowheads and
Native American tools. This was a new addition to Choteau, because usually, at
about this time, people would be running down mainstreet in dinosaur costumes.
I thought it was pretty cool. All this lasted until about 4:00.
I went home and went to Dulce's to do pottery. [At first] I had a hard time centering
the clay in the middle of the wheel. When I tried again it worked out great. I
love the new bowl.
listens to this band called Zap Momma and they sound really good. Dulce rocks.
She also sculpts. Soon she will have a display at the Gleason studio. (Yea!!)
It was really neat.
family taught me alot and they had already done pottery with her before. I
had a lot of fun.
left and then Kathy and Happy [my host mom and dad] cut us a deal. They said that
if we were all packed for Glacier at 9:00, we could rent a movie.
[finished in time], but had a hard time picking a flick. So we rented 6 Days
7 Nights, which was cool because they wanted me to watch some 3-hour long
magic leprachaun movie. Noooooo!!
