Of course we’ll not make it to Alaska by Sunday to see the Iditarod mushers start, so I thought the next best thing would be to take the kids to see a local dog sled race. The Red River Sled Dog Derby start is about an hour and a half from us. I’ve resolved to try to get the kids out and do unique things that they might not otherwise be able to experience. I want to let them see or do things that encourage their interest in learning and having fun at the same time. AM really wants to be a dog sledder some day!
A Thousand Words Thursday is hosted by theMomJen at Cheaper Than Therapy!! Please stop by!!
