Prairie School Day 13
Today we opened with prayer and devotion !!! We talked today how the devil will use depression against us !!! That even though these things happen in our life The Lord will always see us through !!! He sees the end when we only see the beginning ! Our scripture verse came from the book of Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Today we learned about the California Gold Rush ! We discussed how discovery of gold caused greed , cost the miners more money , than they were making , cost many lives ! We talked about the uses of gold ... then and today ! We are fortunate to have the first gold mine in our state and hope to visit it next week if at all possible ! We also talked about her very first memory that really stuck out to her ! She shared the memory of her and her God sister having a tea party together !!! She drew pictures to go along with it ...
We also worked on our other school activities ... We also talked about the chore of making clothes for a family and what it would take to prepare for a wagon journey that Ingalls are about to take in there next book ! So we spent some time today making peasant shirts for a activity in the future !!! We had a good time working on this project together !!! Here are some pictures of our sewing project !!! Hope you guys have a blessed school day !!!
