SMM has a pioneer day for the 4th graders every year. The kids and parents dress in period attire and learn to make candles, wash clothes the old fashion way, have a picnic lunch, etc. It is great fun and this year the weather was great! I had the costumes made when Cynthia was in 4th grade.
This is my friend Jennifer's blog. She started this blog to keep people informed of her husband's battle with cancer. She has continued to blog as a way of coping with David's death. It is very inspirational. http://chemoisyourfriend.blogspot.com/
