Oregon Trail

It was pioneer week here at the Fisher Preparatory Academy for Excellence in Learning.

When we were done reading about all the grand adventures and hardships our early American pioneers faced, Abby decided a little role play was in order, to better help her brothers understand the lesson, of course.

Based on her interpretation of what we read, I can assume she learned that the pioneer women wore ballet tights and layers of dance skirts to keep themselves warm on their travels, and that their primary source of transportation was a covered wagon pulled by bug-eyed oxen.

She did at least go to the trouble of correctly identifying which wall in our house faces west before her trio of plastic pioneers began their journey.

Close enough.
