Little House Ch 14 & 15
Today we opened in prayer and devotion ! Our devotion today was on being neighborly...Mrs. Scott showed neighborly love by taking care of the Ingalls family while they were sick with the ague and fever ! Our Scripture came from the book Mathew 22:39
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Today we read about Pa taking the girls to the Indian camp !!! Ma was not to happy about this .... However the girls were super excited !!! I loved the description of the the camps Laura used ! it was as if it was coming to life right before our eyes !!! From the description of the bones ... That told what the Indian's had eaten. To the tracks left on the ground from the Indian's and animals !!! The excitement of the girls finding the the beads !!! Then the irritation Laura toward Mary for being so good all the time ... leading up to her having to give her beads to Carrie as well !!! We took time to study more on the Osage Indians !!! We learned about foods Indians taught settlers about ! We discussed what their beads would have been made of... How they would have dyed them !
Then we dyed macaroni noodles and set them out to dry to use as a craft tomorrow !
