I almost forgot to post our co-op pics from the last book in the Prairie Primer homeschool unit study. The First Four Years is a small book but it is packed with a lot of good information and things to learn about. We made doughnuts with Almanzo's mother's recipe. Always a hit! The girls twisted them into all kinds of shapes just for fun.
Josiah showed us some footage of traditional wheat harvesting methods with horses. My grandpa used to do this! These were BIG teams! Below is a video of my Grandpa hitching up his Fjords and farming with them. It was taken a little before he passed away at the age of 91. I miss this man! He was a truly gifted horseman.
Amanda and Alli gave Rina a Usborne "Spot the Duck" book and plush ducky to go with it for her birthday.
Naomi taught us about fire safety in the home.
We feasted on rabbit and dumplings and chicken and dumplings, cornbread and creamed peas for our last meal together for the homeschool year.
Topped off the meal with fresh doughnuts cooked in coconut oil instead of lard.
Josiah appreciated his monogrammed handkerchiefs which are super handy for Boy Scout camp outs.
Rina a got a prairie rag doll from Amanda. She loves it!
Thanks for joining us on our journey! Can't wait to see what new adventures in homeschooling await us this next school year.
