Good morning! It is mixed emotions for the studetns right now. They are happy to come home to their families that they've missed and they are also sad that their camp experience is coming to a close. They will be thankful for no more 3 minute showers though!
8:00 a.m. - breakfast: eggs, pears, cranberry bran muffins & oatmeal
9:30 - Talking stick
10:00 - snack, restrooms
11:00 - buses depart
I will keep you updated on our ETA (estimated time of arrival) home. It was a pleasure for us to have your 5th graders this week at OSS and we sure missed the ones that didn't come!
Mrs. Terich & Miss Urban
P.S. The kids will be hungry and ready for lunch right when we come home because the last time they would have eaten is a snack at 10:00 a.m. Have a very restful and wonderful Easter and Spring Break!

Tuesday's Text Messages and Photos from Mrs. Terich
6:41 a.m. Tuesday:
Yawn. It's up and at 'em! The students are just waking up I'm pretty exhausted myself, so I cannot imagine how the kids are feeling, but they are a lot younger and have more energy than old Mrs. Terich! Going up and down these steep hills is good exercise but takes a lot more energy in this high altitude. Today is a full day of activity, so I will not be able to post a lot.
But here's our day:
7:30 a.m. - I'm checking individually on all the Plavan kids to see how they are feeling and if there are any concerns.
8:00 a.m. - Breakfast: flour tortillas, scrambled eggs, cheese, salsa & hash browns
9:15-11:30 a.m. - Ecology, Geology & Wildlife Hiking Trails (Ms. Urban is teaching Ecology & Mrs. Terich is teaching Wildlife)
