The Prairie Primer co-op goes native for "Little House on the Prairie".
Amanda took this cute pic of Rina in a too big straw hat. I could get lost in my baby's eyes.
Hailey taught us about the many uses the Plains Indians had for the buffalo.
The girls created tepees out of construction paper and decorated them.
Washing clothes the old fashioned way.
Josiah is making sure no varmints come near the gals as they do their washing.
Can't imagine doing this with all my clothes. No wonder it took the pioneers all day.
Josiah even got in on the washboard action.
The tepee village the girls made. So cute! Love the little people that Gracia made. There are even so Lego people in among the village as well.
The next week, Hailey did her report on Indian dress. She drew a bunch of her own pictures to show us. — at Mission Road Homestead.
Josiah did his presentation on traditional Native American weapons.
First time making Indian fry bread.
Michael was home and helped all us women folk properly cut out our sunbonnets. Couldn't have done it without him as none of us women know how to sew!
Learning to sew a sunbonnet by hand. Trust me, it isn't as easy as it looks or sounds!
Learning about cougars.
Delicious dinner of watermelon, blackberry cobbler, sweet potatoes and stewed prairie chicken with dumpling and gravy.
Rina with the moccasins my friend, Sarah, gave her. They stay on really well!
Sitting down to our prairie feast. Love all the smiles!
Hope you've enjoyed our "Little House on the Prairie" journey. It sure has been a fun ride!
We'll see you "On the Banks of Plum Creek" next month.
