collections inthe storage area; Circumpoloar items, Ocean, and African.
The dolls from the North were very interesting, as were the powerful masks from
Java and Africa. We rode down in a huge frieght elevator which was lots of
Our afternoon activity was based on Blackfoot beadwork.

|"Just when Shannon was getting
into bed, the phone rang. It was the doctor from the hospital.
He said that her mother was coming home tomorrow. Shannon raced down
the stairs and told her family that they were so excited that she was
coming home. So the next morning she rand downstairs and she saw
everybody else, but their mom wasn't there. So she asked her dad
where mom was. He said, "she's coming at lunchtime now."
Shannon was still excited but not that much than yesterday. So she
got into a very special suit with pants, a shirt with a matching coat that
her mom gave her. Soon they were all dressed-up and ready for their
mom and wife. There was a knock on the door. Dad went to open
the door. It was mom. We all reaced to her. She was so
glad to see her. That night when we had diner, mom put on her
special red and gold dress on and I still had my suit." By Brooke

cabin was cold and empty. My dad was not making breakfast as usual.

with her mom and dad and her two brothers and sisters. The brothers
names are James, Kevin and Jaramia. Kaitlyn wanted to be a
rancher when she got older. That night a wolf got in the barn and
ate one of the horses. The next morning her father went to feed the
horses "AAAA!" said her father. "Get away!" He got his gun and
shot a bean bag at the wolf. Then the wolf ran out of the barn.
The father thought to himself, " I have to tell this to Kaitlyn..."
||"One dat a thirteen year old
girl named Pam was putting her horse in her father's stable. When
her older sister came in and said," You have to sell Chestnut."
"Why?" said Pam. "Because we are moving." said Pam's bit
sister. So Pam finished getting her horse into the stable and went
up to her room. She felt sick and sad. Soon her mom called her
to talk. Her mom said they were going to move farther down the river
and they weren't allowed to have any horses. So she made a phone
call and the man said I would love to have a horse. So Pam hugged
her horse and it smelled like hay. Pam rubbed Chestnuts' flanks and
hay dust rose and Chestnut coughed. Then Pam went to tell her mom
that Chestnut coughed..."By Mikala
