Prairie School Day 15

Little House Ch.5&6
Today we started our day in devotion and prayer our devotion today was about fear in being alone ... Laura didn't like being alone on the prairie with out the wagon being there with Ma , Mary , baby Carrie , and herself . The Psalmist experienced the same feeling !!! 
Psalm 8:3-9 says 
 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
We disscussed that we should never be scared because God is always with us ! Also when we do get scared all we have to do is call upon the Lord !
Today we read chapters 5 & 6 . The Ingalls family have found where they want to build there home !!! So Pa and Ma made a make shift camp to do till the new cabin could be built !!! Pa would spend quite a bit of time cutting logs . It didn't take time for Pa to start the foundation of the new cabin !!! Soon he and ma would stack the logs to build the walls !!! When the family least expected it Ma had an accident and sprain her ankle ... This caused a delay on the building of the cabin !!! However this didn't stop ma from doing her daily work !!! Laura said it best when she said it just had to do it a little slower ! Then God sent them a blessing !!! A neighbor !!! Mr Edwards !!! I always loved him !!! Any ways He and Pa were able to to trade out work with each other ! Mr Edwards was able to help Pa finish the cabin walls and Pa would help him build his when Ingalls is completed !!!Pa told ma that as soon as he helped Edward he would put a barn up for pet and patty ! Then he would put a proper roof on the cabin insted of the canvas used on the wagon !!! He would also dig the family a well , put a proper floor in the cabin before winter , build a fire place , table , chairs and beds by winter !!! Ma asked for a clothes line ..... 
We took the oppertuntity to learn about sprains and the first aid for sprains today !!! We also talked about the blood function !!! How the blood clots !
Pa told Ma today that he could live here on the prairie forever !!! even if it did get over crowded !!! He told Laura that he thought the Indians were on their annual hunt was the reason they hadn't seen on yet ! Ma told pa she wished that sending letter was eaiser to her family ... However the nearest Postal Post is 40 miles away !!! She knew there family had no idea where they ended up at or if they were ok ... It would just have to wait till Pa went town !!! We took this oppertunity to learn about the USPS and the pony express !!! 
 We are very thankful that our mail doesn't take months to recieve !!! and that for the most part we are insured it will arrive !!! I can't wait till next week we have lots of fun things in store !!! We have had a blessed day !!! Hope everyone has an amazing weekend !!!!
