Get ready for photo overload. This week I ran my first summer camp – A Trip Back in Time with Laura Ingalls Wilder. Five 3-hour days full of everything pioneer. Because I am thoroughly exhausted, I’ll let the pictures speak (mostly) for themselves. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
If you’re not familiar with the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder, some of the following will be confusing. Look them up – grasshoppers, pig’s bladder, Plum Creek crab – all real.
A tiny baby pool doubled as both Lake Pepin in Wisconsin and Plum Creek in Minnesota. Water + Girls = FUN!
Living the life of a pioneer – as described by Laura!
One day was devoted to the many Christmas celebrations the Ingalls family had. Another day was a pioneer school experience.
The week ended with an informal presentation for the parents. Happy kids. Proud parents. Exhausted me. All in a day in the life of a teacher. This one, at least.
