Basketball and Shovels

This weekend the kids are off to play basketball and we are hosting the junior high tournament.  That means I can't really get in my classroom so I guess I'll just have to sew (insert fake poor me here).

Basketball is king here in Newtok... this morning the high school students were at the airport shoveling it so the plane could land and they could get to their tournament in Tununak (and so planes can arrive for our tournament).  Picture of their wimpy shovels below... it is hard to believe how quickly they cleared the runway (there were only 8 shovels total).  Hopefully on Sunday I'll have a "finished" project to post as I sew and the the gym is hopping.  Happy happy me.
