We had a busy Saturday. First we got up and ate pie at 9:26:53 to celebrate Pi Day. If you add the date and the time together it equals Pi 3.141592653. The day before we had made two types of pie, pecan pie and apple crumb top pie. After we ate our pie we drove over to the archery range. Ranger B did a program about archery. First he talked about how to stay safe while handling a bow. Did you know that archery is the second most safe sport in the world??? Can you guess what the first is?? It is ping-pong. After he finished speaking we were able to hold and shoot two different types of bows. The first is the re-curve bow. It is a more traditional bow, like the ones you see in movies. Next is the compound bow. The compound bow is the most popular bow here in the U.S. After Ranger B finished talking we picked out our favorite bows. I chose a re-curve and Marcus chose a compound. We got to shoot three times each and we all graduated from archery 101. Now we can move on to Archery 202! After we finished archery we went home and had lunch. Then we biked up to Area C and D in the park to volunteer at Kids V.S. Wild. First we split the kids up in to teams, Black and Red. Then while one team learned about compasses the other team learned about how to stay safe while hiking and what to bring on a hike. Then we had a little quiz. After learned how to use a map to find things. While Mark (one of the volunteers here at the park) was teaching us about mapping skills he got a phone call. Amy and Andy Flat were lost!!! We asked them a few questions and The Red team set off to find them. When they got back they told us they could not find them. Them the Black team set off to find them. They came back with Amy and Andy Flat!!! All the kids did a great job! To finish the day we went to an Astronomy program and learned about the stars.
