By Megan Melbostad and

Hannah Underbakke

Waking up at three in the morning isn’t the usual for us, but on April 7, it was acceptable because we were all so excited. Since we were leaving for Washington D.C. at 4:30, we had to be at the school at 3:45. Our first stop was at Wisconsin Dells to pick up Mark the Shark, our awesome bus driver, and for a bathroom break. Our next stop was in Chicago, where we went to the Willis Tower. We went up 103 floors in a one minute elevator ride, which some people enjoyed and some didn’t. After the tower, we went to Millennium Park, where we saw the giant silver bean, the Crown Fountain, and the Music Pavilion.

The next stop was Notre Dame, where we saw the women’s basketball team practicing and saw a man practicing his diving skills. We continued walking around the building and saw all of the awards for sports played at the college. We soon got back on the bus and headed for Toledo, Ohio, where we stayed the night. When we finally got to the hotel, it was so nice to relax. We ate pizza for supper from Papa John’s, went for a swim, and then went to bed to get some sleep for the next day.

Gettysburg

By Emma Wathier and Alyssa Tangen

We woke up on Friday, April 8 at 3:45 in the morning to leave Toledo, Ohio, at 4:30 a.m. On the bus, we got to sleep until we got to our first stop for breakfast at Panera. We finally arrived in Gettysburg and stopped at the cyclorama and watched a cool film about the battle. After the film, we went on a walking tour of the Gettysburg National Military Cemetery. We learned that the first monument put in the cemetery was one from Minnesota recognizing the First Minnesota. We learned how to fire a cannon.

We had a couple hours on our own to eat and go shopping before we went back to the hotel and had to dress warm for the night tour of the battlefield. Coach T was dressed as a union soldier and almost fell showing off his moves. Mr. Wyffels took us through the battlefield, and we got to march like soldiers. We stopped at a place on the battlefield, lit candles and sang “Amazing Grace” in honor of all the men who lost their lives during the battle. After the the night tour, we went back to the hotel and went to bed to rest up for another big day.
