Today’s activities at a dog-sledding outfit included a sled ride, playing with puppies, a labyrinth, storytelling, hot chocolate in a longhouse and lots of playing in the snow. Here are some pictures of our day.
We learned that “musher” is actually the English mispronunciation of the French “marcheur”. That gave me an idea to find more words like that, words with amusing stories. We also listened to the amazing story of Balto, a sled dog that (heading his team) was able to transport medicine across the country in record time when sledding was the fastest way to travel. I was also happy that the kids saw the longhouse because I have plans to make a model longhouse with them.
All in all, a busy but productive week!
