    Crystal Lau:  This was such an amazing way to spend my birthday! I woke up to my theme song “Don’t rain on my parade” between my 5D4H fam, I received a bday song by a class for 200+ people after a classroom announcement, and I received a lot of personal, face-to-face birthday messages rather than […]

    Courtney OnstadHola, Constad here! Well, where to start…last night was definitely rough. We were all talking before bed saying how it was actually quite warm out and that we didn’t think it was going to be that bad. That was just a major jinx! I laid awake for 3 hours quite paranoid with all the […]

The winds are a howlin’ and we were out looking for a nice sheltered spot but I’m not sure if we’ve pinned anything down quite yet. We just got back from our cardboard search, and […]
