Oneka Elementary School

This morning was round IV talking to elementary students. Today was the 4th grade class at Oneka Elementary School near White Bear Lake. What a great group of kids and an amazing school. The elementary school is bigger than our K-12 school at home in Baraga.
All of the kids were full of smiles, enthusiasm, with lots of questions and were even well behaved. They continually ask anything that comes to mind without hesitation. It’s enjoyable and refreshing. They were a bright group of kids with all sorts of questions.
Once again the opportunity to talk to a young group of kids is great. It gives me a chance to be a role model. Most of all I’m a kid at heart and it lets me be a kid in a sense.
I’ve been getting a great taste of elementary schools in the country so far. It started at home in Baraga, a tiny school in the “middle of nowhere” as some people think. Next was an inner city school in Milwaukee. And now a brand new school in the suburbs of St. Paul. A great look into the classrooms.
Thank you for having me Oneka Elementary!

How fitting that you were in a school today on our 42nd Anniversary! Kids are neat and yes, you are a wonderful role model. Let me tell you Bugsy, we are up in years and we both have a child within us. Have fun. We are almost ridin' on your bumper. xoxx B & L

My students really enjoyed meeting you and looking at your "tight" jeep. We will be following your progress as you travel across the United States. They wanted me to tell you that we have been studying "journeys" (a dog sled race, hot air balloon trip, etc.) but your journey is their favorite one so far. Also, in social studies we are learning all the states and their capitals so it will be great to watch you move from state to state. It will give us the opportunity to learn that capital and imagine what you are doing based on what that state has to offer. (And apparently, whether or not they have a baseball team.) Drop us a postcard, we'll send you e-mails. And don't forget to cheer for the TWINS!!
