Summer in Boyne

Enjoying beautiful sunsets on our front porch. 012

Betsy is here this weekend ( more on that later) and we were commenting about how light it is even at 9:30pm!

If you don’t have summer plans please come up and visit BOYNE! I know where you can stay the night for free Smile


Around Boyne

Friday Nights are $1 bowling nights- in Boyne.  $1 games, shoes, and pizza. We have gone 2x so far. I'm getting better at bowling. I've even beat Marvin, once.

We went with our friends the Hasty’s – Amy and Dan. They are expecting their first child in November!


We also went with the Manthei family (they have 3 kids, Anika- 10, Kohen-7, Will-2)


and the Stahl family (they have 2 kids, Andrew-4, Jake-2)



A few weeks ago we had a spirit week at school.


Mis-Match Model Day! I like Spencer’s pose- he is in the RED vest! 011

Pajama Day- I let them take a nap for the last 5 minutes of class!


The Sophomores are frantically trying to learn their presidents in order. Some crazy teacher is making them know them for their final!


How many presidents can you name? There are 44!

Our classes favorite video to help us learn!

Imagine listening to this at 9:30 in the morning! Welcome to History Class!!! :)


National Contest Finalist

A few months ago I had the Seniors for seminar. This is a shorter period of the day. We decided to work on scholarships and team building for the 6 week course.  One activity we did was to create a historical video. We then submitted it to Samsung's contest. They were asking students to make a video on their historical super hero. Some students did Achilles, Amelia Earhart, and Pocohontas. I just got word today that Tabor Priest one of our Seniors is a top ten finalist for the contest- he did his video on Johnny Appleseed! We need to spread the word and vote for him! If he wins- my school, Concord, wins too. Tabor will take home $500 and our school will get a new Samsung SAMCAM 860 (document camera)!    
        Here is a picture of the video. You have to have to click this HERE to watch it. 

Now I need you all to go and VOTE so he can be the WINNER! (you must have facebook to vote, otherwise you can't)

Go Vote then, please copy the below info to your facebook page/blog-
I'll keep you posted on the outcome! We are very excited and proud of Tabor for his achievement!
