Good Morning Anchorage

This afternoon we had our second Skype session. We got to video chat with a retired teacher.

Here are a few facts we learned about Alaska...
1. During summer months it can be light for 24 hours! They have special "darkening curtains" to help them sleep.
2. Right now the sun sets at 3:30 in the afternoon.
3. Food is expensive. Many hunt their meat. Moose and reindeer sausage are popular foods. Fish is really big as well.
4. Hiking is a popular activity in Alaska, especially during summer months.

Here's another very blurry photo.

We also began receiving our holiday cards from the Holiday Card Exchange. We used Google Earth to compare our community with their community.

 This school in Virginia reminded us of our school...minus the very busy road.
We found this TX school and community to be interesting. There are very little trees and many, many identical blocks. 

We have two more Skype sessions set up for next week.
