Rendezvous

Yup, thats right Rendezvous
Remember the mountain man way back when? They used to trade and trap fur (pelts). My fourth graders study Utah Social Studies (mountain men, Indians, Pioneers..) everything. So Friday we had a very big Rendezvous Day.
We had a mountain man come, we trapped pelts, we played games, got our faces painted, ate chili and cornbread in tin pans, and actually got to trade and trap with the other fourth graders at our school.
We had so much fun

For one of the games we had a bean toss. I had my picture taken and this is what turned out.

The kids absolutely loved it. They had so much fun throwing bean bags at our faces, it was so fun to watch. My face only got one hole through it. The other teacher faces were ripped to shreds... I wonder who they like the best? No just kidding.

Anndee (montain man girl), Norean (pelt lady), Me (Indian princess), and Norma-Jean(1/2 mountain man 1/2 Indian Cheif)

We had so much fun. I love the fourth grade.
P.S only 19 more days of school.....
