|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?||
Today we went through a lot of dust! It was getting in our faces, and bothering the animals. It was hard to keep moving with dust blowing in our eyes! Even though the dust was in our eyes and face we walked 15 miles on day 7. It was annoying to find out our way through the Trail. The front must have been hard to control. It was hard to herd the cattle today also.
Today Elias got a blister while we were walking. We tried to come up with a solution, and decided that he would keep the foot moist during night and during the day walk. The blister got worse, and he decided to ride in the wagon for the next couple days. We felt bad, but eventually the blister got better. He is on the trail again!
Today it was hard to control our animals. The oxen were getting distracted on the road, and the sheep kept running off, and we had to retrieve them. Between the oxen and the sheep, we had a lot more work today then usual. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.
