Ruby's First Day of School

Ruby outside of her school with Moxy and Kristy.

8:15a is a little early for us, but we all arrived just in time.
This is what we arrived to. These are actually lines of kids.
Ruby and Riley. Both looking a little worried.
Greg getting one more hug in.
Mrs. Smith (Ruby's teacher) is telling Ruby to put her inside shoes on.
Anna and Maya. They are in a different class, but looking cute.

Cured Fish Eggs

I guess this is what the silver salmon like to eat. Once they are cured you put it on your lure and wait for the bite.
Pretty color.

Berry Picking

We tried to jump a beaver dam, but did not realize how wide it was. The beavers have been bringing the land to the dam.
Ruby so excited to pick salmon berries.
This is the first year that Moxy got into picking berries. Both kids last about two hours hiking on the tundra, and filling their buckets.

We came upon this crane by the water.
Going home. The day was amazing. Nice breeze to keep the bugs away, some cloud coverage every once in a while to keep the sun away, but mostly the water was smooth for a nice ride home.
