First Day of Home School!!! Aug 22, 2012

August 22, was our first official day of Home School with Avery in 7th Grade and Owen in 4th.  We woke to an amazingly clear day, looking at this spectacular mountain landscape, at the toe of the Kennicott Glacier.  Our friend Mike Loso who camped with us gave a lecture on how Alaskan landscape dynamics are different than other places.  We also learned the origins of local rock formations;  esp. Nikolai Greenstone and Chitistone Limestone (which can be seen in these photos).

Jiffypop and eggs? I suppose it was a lesson in the juxtaposition of the mass produced corn based culture vs. the organic free range Ag movement. Just curious, how were the eggs prepared?
