5 jars of sand
Number 22 on the birthday list is done! My goal was to collect 5 new jars of sand this year. The first sample is from the Kuskokwim river here in Bethel. The second jar is from the desert of Las Vegas. The second is from the Hocking River. The third is from up river on the Kuskokwim. And the fifth is from the little Quinhagak beach. My sand collection is growing. I have had several students show an interest in the sand collection and that makes me glad that I do it. Each sand sample is unique and all the jars also have their own memories for me.
I'm a high school science teacher currently living my dream of teaching out in bush Alaska. I'm always up for new adventures and like to travel anywhere and everywhere. This blog is a way to keep in touch with friends and family, journal about life, and share my experiences with the world.
