Remember my angry little Egyptian girl? Well, it seems that as time marched on and humanity made strides in things like eating utensils and other creature comforts the children became much happier.
second grade will wrap up their reading of pioneer times by enjoying prairie day. They'll start the morning by eating delicious pancakes with maple syrup and bacon and then the fun will really begin. Quilting, butter making, gardening, wood chopping and whittling...there will be a ton of activity happening all day. The grand finale will be a big square dance that includes a father/daughter and mother/son waltz. Abby has been looking forward to that probably about as much as anything. Actually, she's so excited about the day that she had a hard time falling asleep last night but she was all bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning!
