A note from Ms Noshie in Beiruit

Today's the last day of the Iditarod. Although we did not really set through
with the wikispace thing, my students really got into this. Right now we
still have three classmates whose musher is still up and running; Dani S
(Mackey, who is probably going to win), Salah ( at 73) and mine (Curtis) at
72. Today they will reach the finish line. We've been tracking them by GPS,
and today watched a very nice movie (Snow Dogs). They really enjoyed the
movie, and every time there was a scene that they recognized, or vocabulary
that was used that they had learned, they all looked at each other. All in
all, a pretty good learning experience. They learned about mushers,
gang lines, wheels, and all kinds of interesting thing. Thanks for signing us
up!
