Back at It!

School started almost a month ago already, and teams have started traveling around the state for games, running, and golf.  Last weekend I took junior varsity football to Stevensville – Montana’s oldest established white community.

Luckily the schools are close to town so I could hit a few antique stores and take a little walking tour. There are some great old buildings, a small downtown, and a lovely church, St. Mary’s, built in 1847, which they charge to go into, so I didn’t 🙂
