Looney Lester Arrives
Looney Lester has safely arrived in Cedar City, Utah. Our class was very excited to see him and had already planned his week within the first hour of
Lester will be going to dance with Taran tonight (Monday) and will
hopefully get to see some of the town.
On Tuesday he will be going to a basketball game with Derek and David.
Wednesday is Scouts night so Lester is off to have an adventure with Brandon.
Thursday he is in for a special treat with Brandee. They are going to clogging class.
On Friday some of our students get to go skiing at Brian Head, a ski resort just about 40 miles away. We thought Lester would really enjoy playing in some Utah snow for a day. He will even get a ski lesson. Hopefully it will be sunny so that Lester will not get to cold. We will watch the weather.
The class wanted to say thank you to Miss Duby and her class for the wonderful page on the internet. The Utah links were great!! Kyle wanted everyone to be aware that Zion National Park is only about 40 miles from our school. When you see the pictures of sage brush, sand, and red rock that is what some of our backyards look like.
Happy Reading Everyone!

Brandee would like to let everyone know a little about clogging since it is
something new to a lot of you.
Clogging is similiar to tap dance. There are a two taps on the front of my
shoes and one tap on the back. The taps on the bottom of my shoes are
separate so they make a different noise then tap shoes. I go to clogging once
a week. My clogging teacher's name Heather Miner. I wear green pants and a
green shirt with silver sequin and a sequin skirt. I think clogging is fun
and we get to go to Hawaii to perform next year. If you have any questions
write it on the listserv and I will answer them for you.

Looney Lester was sent from Cedar City on Tuesday. We had a very bad wind
storm the last few days and our power has been on and off. I could not mail
sooner because of this. The class really enjoyed having him here. He even
learned how to ski last Friday. We are looking forward to learning more about
each place that the Looneys visit.
