The Iditarod Dog Sled Race-Alaska
Our family has dove into all things Iditarod over the past week! Taylor's teacher has a brother who lives in Alaska, and has raced in this race. So, he educates the kids on this race, the mushers, dogs, etc. Each student had to pick a musher to follow! Taylor chose Lance Mackey! He has taken his 24 hour break and is the first to check in this morning at the Ruby Alaska checkpoint! If you would like to follow with us....http://www.iditarod.com/!! Lance Mackey was last years winner! Things started out kinda iffy for him as his dogs were sick, and had to stop alot to change their booties! We have become obsessed, checking his whereabouts many times a day! What a fun event this has been for Taylor (and the rest of us)!
