10/5/21 Top Secret!
So... Super pinky promise... Top secret information...
This morning I got to do something fun with the boys! In Whitefish, there is a business named Stumptown Art Studio. I have checked it out on earlier trips and today I took those 3 little guys and mom to make something for Christmas gifts for their mom and dad! There are a lot of options there, and they are used to working with kids. They have a workbench set up for making fused glass objects, and it doesn't take real long, so that was a winning combo. First, they got a little instruction, a chance to look at completed projects and learning about how this artform works. Then they each sat down to use their imagination to make a small project. Because this involves leaving the project there to be fired in the kiln, then mailed to them, I helped control the sizes of what was practical. Other than that, they had their pick of colors, textures and design. I wanted these gifts to be something practical for mom and dad to always be able to use. We ended up with a nightlight cover, a pendant and a window sparkler! Can't wait to see the finished products!
Bob and I also took a run down to Kalispell to get Covid-19 testing. Even though we are feeling normal, it was a good chance to verify our status before we continue our travels. Dan's most recent result is still positive, and Loti is hanging in there with negative!
This morning we had a worrisome moment when we were driving into Whitefish and saw some smoke plumes rising up from the slopes nearby. We soon learned that it was a prescribed burn of some areas that had accumulated too much fuel to be safe.
Back at the campground, we got some laundry and cleaning up done, and then had mom, Brita, Ian, Jack, Leo, Mary, Jarry, Dan and Loti over for grilling and supper at the trailer. It was a great evening to sit outside and enjoy another night together. Dan and Loti kept some distance, but close enough to enjoy some stories and laughs. Loti is a second grade teacher and has been figuring out what the rules for going back to work, there are district guidelines for people who are exposed, vaccinated, negative and symptom free. Those kids will be happy to have Ms. Hansen back in class!
