Just a couple weeks ago we had our march break and since then we have been busy with our spring activitys. On april 23 we helped out the lane family on there farm, by doing things around the barn and helping them treat there sheep. On May 2 we volunteered to help two familys to stop there house from flooding by putting sand bags around their houses.We have also went on a fort quappelle walk to learn about how significant fort quapelle really is. A very exciting and competetive day was on April 25 when we had our Colin fry survival challenge. This challenged the students to test there knowledge to survive in a certain situation by incourporating knowledge they have abtained in order for them to survive. For example we had to build a fire then boil water on the fire we made, we build a sutiable shelter, the we had to complete the nots Colin showed us and make a figure 4 trap. From may 7 to the 10 we are going on a trip to either grasslands and cypress uplands or grasslands and big muddy. Many of you may know that there is a fire in cypress so that is a factor we have to consider also when the roads get wet it is not possible for the bus to get down to the camp site so thats why we may not go cypress. This program has defiantly improved the abilty of the group as a team and will keep doing so throught the semster.
This semester is going by so fast I don’t even know where the time has gone, it feels like yesterday were all just getting to know each other in our first day of class.The past month it has been packed full with exciting and adventurous activities. At the beginning of the month we went on a winter camping trip for 3 days which one of the nights we slept in quinzes. During the past weeks we have also went cross country skiing, snowshoeing, swimming, skating and went to Gymnastics Adventure. Our interns are trying to get us in shape for are big hikes so we have been doing intense workouts and one of the workouts happened at a gym called Level 10. Some of our day trips have been cancelled because of the weather but we are trying to reschedule them as soon as we can. These past weeks have allowed us to grow as a team and learn more about each other while leaning life lessons along the way.
