Daily Republic News Story

The Associated Press picked up the story about the kids and it was in several newspapers:  Argus Leader, The Rapid City Journal and the Washington Times to name a few.  I have to say that I am shocked about this.  I had no idea that it would be such a big deal!

The reporter had interviewed me on the phone on Wednesday.  He later emailed that it would be on the front page and he asked if he could come meet the students and take some photos.  He came here that next afternoon and the kids were impressive while playing bird bingo.  

By the way, the reporter misunderstood.  The Snow Geese did not land on the playground. They flew over the playground and as good little birders the kids stood quietly outside and we watched them fly over. After they passed, the kids applauded for the Snow Geese.  I thought that was really cool!  Here is the link to the article.
