Utah Day

I love helping out in the classroom on special event days! (Especially at Waterford where volunteering means you just show up at the appointed time and they put you to work -- no advance planning or preparation!)

Today was Utah Day. I assisted with looming and the rest of the day they made butter, learned the Virginia Reel, played Pioneer Games, had a Native American speaker and watched a guy shoot his musket.

Nick was so excited he was up at 5:45 and dressed in costume by 6:15! He's been sick a couple of days this week and so have 1/3 of his class. One of his best friends was gone for three days and he made Dan text his friend's dad to remind him that it was Utah Day and to try not to miss it! Love how he looks out for his friends!
