The kids are soooo excited to learn about the mountain they have been impatiently watching the news for since January. Kelda is most excited by all this action as she is really into volcanoes, storms and fascinated even more so with the caldera over Yellowstone. She says I can't use the title "There she Blows" until the caldera goes and by then everyone will know first hand and it won't be by blogs.
