The girls are adjusting well. Claire loves her teacher. She loves studying math and science!! She has made some really good friends as well as Cate. Cate is enjoying preschool. She is going by her first name, Ella, at school. We thought she needs to get use to using her formal name rather than a nickname. She likes being called Ella. Some of the kids in the village call her Cate and some call her Ella. We have tons of kids at her house each day. We love this because it was one of the things we hoped for when we moved here.
What's a muskox?? We have herds of reindeer, caribou, moose and muskox around here. Muskox are a cross between a cow and ox. They have upside down horns and are very hairy. Our neighbor killed one and these pictures are of the remains.
I have traveled to many beaches around the world, and have never once found a starfish. Who would have thought that I would find a rocky beach covered with them in Northern Alaska. We have collected tons of these awesome creatures. We have found tiny starfish all the way to large ones. I never get tired of collecting them.
