The Navajo girls had a great time last week getting in both a craft and outing just before spring break.
Wubbies, teddy bears, pajamas, and pillow cases… how could Wednesday’s craft meeting not be fun? The girls designed their own pillow cases, ate popcorn, and drank Kool Aid in a relaxing evening of crafts. Pajamas were crazy cool but Emily Compton stole the show with pj’s that looked like she was wearing a giant teddy bear. We loved it! Geoff and Michaela Noth along with Dave (me) and Julia Farrell hosted Wednesday’s pajama party.
Friday was filled with pizza, pop, NCAA tournament games, and a friendly bowling competition. Adam and Lily had something for everyone. Somehow the Kendals were even able to persuade local celebrity teacher, Mrs. Coleen Dewitt, to join her family including Navajo members Grace and Eric at the party. Good times!
Dads relaxed and watched basketball tournament games while the girls bowled. Then at 7:00 p.m. the Brunswick Zone went psychedelic… Lebowski style. A bowling battle as epic as Roy Munson taking on Kingpin Ernie McCracken ensued. Alright, so the Big Lebowski and Kingpin references are exaggerations but after two hours of intense bowling action, Abby Sandrik emerged with the ‘Queenpin’ title. She knocked down 187 pins that night. Abby earned the Navajo Bowling trophy, which was a Brunszwick Zone bowling pin autographed by the tribe. Chief Tim Sandrik said that she could proudly display the trophy in the Sandrick’s home, as long as she didn’t use it to hit her brother, Henry. We wish Henry Sandrik the best of luck.
The night ended and fortunately no one was ‘Munsoned’.
