Treena's Travels

This blog was set up to journal my experience of living in Nunavut and keep friends and family up to date on these happenings. It's a wonderful place, this hideaway in the north, and I'm loving my time here. An unforgettable place with unforgettable people. I'm lucky to be here.

Mother Nature's cruel idea of an April Fool's day prank

Well, today it sure is cold but we snuck in a couple of nice days before this hit. Yesterday we took a ride out on the machines and kammatiq (sp??) to let the dogs have a good run. It was great to finally have some fresh air.

On Friday our class took a short field trip out to an igloo that the school hired some elders to build for us. It was chilly out but so much fun. I even tried my hand at caribou skin skipping. I haven't skipped a rope in many many years so it only took one try for me to decide that I'm better at turning the rope than I am at jumping it!
