It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon for a hike. The weather was comfortably cool, slightly cloudy, and finally Friday! The Fifth Grades hiked up to the Water Mine up Picayune Canyon above Spring Lake. It was about four miles round trip. It was a nice way to get some exercise and enjoy the company of friends. The students enjoyed a hot dog right off the grill as they headed for home.
Today we had our annual Mountain Man Rendezvous. Kids were in the Army crawling under obstacle courses quick drawing cans down with marshmallows and throwing sabers for distance. We hold the Mountain Man Rendezvous to celebrate the peoples of Utah. We had games that the Pioneers played who played field hockey in honor of the lacrosse games of the Indians. The kids even come away with some crafts. All in all, it's a great day that teaches the kids a small part of our wonderful Utah history.
