The Lure of the Locks- a Trip on the Spirit of Jefferson


In the 1970's, my grandmother worked at the McAlpine Locks and Dam.  Specifically, she handled purchasing for the Corps of Engineers.  That was quite an unusual job for a woman in those days.  But, as a young child, I was only interested in the cool aspects of her job.  For example, when a barge carrying hazardous chemicals got stuck for weeks near the locks, Grandma had to carry a gas mask to work.  The best part?  I got to try it on!

Summer Spelling Bees

 
We are sadly bidding goodbye to the summer of 2013 and *eagerly* turning our attention to the beginning of a new school year. This will be a first for my granddaughter, entering kindergarten. As the days get shorter and our grandchildren’s time more involved with school activities, they will be outdoors less; so, to preserve the memories of our summer fun outside and gain better alphabet and spelling skills, we went on a nature walk to collect the things of summer we cherished. We used these elements, arranged on white paper, and created words!
