welcome to our farmhouse…life is good

pioneer day celebration...


Our family loves history, and so this week we'll be celebrating Pioneer Day! While Pioneer Day is officially July 24, we like to spend the week leading up to it doing something fun each day. We'll play pioneer games, listen to music of the time, and cook recipes over the tripod outside or in the tin kitchen by the fireplace. I'll definitely wear my pioneer dress and pinafore
apron to get into the spirit!

It's a good time to reflect on what our ancestors sacrificed and left behind, talk with our children about the unknown road that was ahead of the pioneers...the joys, along with the dangers and sadness they experienced. They have left us an example to follow, and we are grateful for that. Amid all the fun, it's the faith, courage, and strength of the pioneers that we hope to teach our children as we celebrate this week.

  1. I LOVE your blog, first off you and I are alike we both LOVE our family. My Husband and I love history and our children have learned alot about our History not only in school because I don't believe they teach our children what they need to know but from us, their parents our sons are now 18 yrs old going to College in Sept and our youngest is 15 going into 19th grade but I firmly believe that we are their teachers!

    I really love your blog and I can't wait for your next post. I hope you can come by my blog and check it out!

    Blessings,
    Tricia

  2. Such fun! Glad to hear you go all out, it certainly helps bring things to life for the kids.

    My favourite saying is "How do you know where you're going, if you don't know where you've been?" I can't think of a better way to see where we've been. Have fun!
