Last week Megan had a Mountain Man Rendezvous at school. The 4th grade decided instead of a school field trip they wanted to do this Rendezvous. A couple of months ago Megan brought home a note from her teacher about their plans for this big Mountain Man event and they needed some volunteers to help. I got so excited because this would be a perfect event for Andy to volunteer with. Growing up Andy and his father were really big into Mountain Man stuff. When they went camping as a family they would sleep in a teepee instead of tent, in fact for our wedding present Andy's dad made us our own teepee ( I know it may sound a little strange, we have only actually slept in it 1 time but the kids sure get a kick out of it). So, Andy called his dad to ask if he would like to also help him with this event. Andy's dad was thrilled and so excited he even took the day off from work. After a couple months of planning the event turned out great. All the 4th grade teachers were thrilled that Andy had a teepee to set up for the event. Some of the other stations they had were candle making, quilt making, panning for gold, Dutch oven corn bread, making butter, rope making, Tomahawk throw, pioneer games, and pie eating contest. The event lasted all morning and they had a blast.

Each class got their picture taken in front of the teepee. This is Megan's 4th grade class.
They had a tug of war between the classes.
