Gzzz! What a cliffhanger that was. Someone almost dropped their phone while blogging yesterday in the school house. The SEND button got hit in the mishap and there was no going back. Thank goodness the teacher wasn't in. But anyway the gentlemen we met have a very big place in South Dakota where they grow many grains and have hundreds of cattle. I hope we are able to take them up on their invite one day. Afterwards we bumped into a few friends we hadn't seen in years. It was really great catching up with them.
On Saturday night the park treated us to a really nice dinner and afterwards we had a lovely campfire that Tim set up for everyone. One of the teens who attended this event even brought out some marsh mellows. Later we realized our skewers had been cleaned by Roxy who had joined us fireside. Sunday came and went so fast that we barely had time to do anything other than our volunteer chores . . . school in the morning then the Partin house for the afternoon shift. Tim and I learn something new and amazing about the local history here every year we come and we enjoy being able to be a part of this event. We have departed Ft. Christmas for now and hope to begin finalizing the big road trip for this summer.
