Story Hour!  Thanks to Emily Carpenter for sharing her story of the time she spent as a National Park Ranger. She even brought her uniform.  We learned about the rangers’ duties and their ultimate responsibility to preserve the parks.  The story “The Camping Trip that Changed America” was about Teddy Roosevelt and how much he loved our forests and waters and wildlife.  The children made bird feeders with cardboard rolls, peanut butter, and bird seed.  And there were S’mores and milk for a snack!  There sure is a lot of fun around here.  Crystal Andersen was the reader on Tuesday, November 12. Thanks Crystal for filling in at the last minute!  On November 19th, Spencer Clairmont will be here.
