In 4th grade here, the students
learn all about our lovely state of Nebraska!
All students get to take a little field trip to Heritage School where they spend
the day doing school work on slates and learning just like the students did in the good old days!!
Oh, and they dressed like pioneers too! It was a day to dump the uniform and put on a dress with an apron!
A Grandmother of a classmate made the most adorable dress
and bonnet that Maddy wore!
While the thought of a field trip was so exciting for Miss M,
the menu was not.
Because guess what, pioneers didn't have bbq chips!
Nope, the students had to bring their own lunch and eat whatever students might have had back in the olden days!!
Oh my word!
What in the world would my little bbq-chip-loving girl eat???
Well, she had a snickerdoodle cookie (approved), grapes and strawberries and
bread with peanut butter all wrapped up in wax paper tied with twine
and placed in a bandanna!
What a fun day!!
She came home with a much greater appreciation for all that the
pioneers had to do!
She also snarfed down a couple bags of chips
said she was so happy that she wasn't a pioneer girl!!
