Last week at Emma's school they had a dress up day. It is reading month, and in honor of that, students were asked to dress up as their favorite book character. Emma picked, you guessed it, Laura Ingles.
When Emma was three, the love affair started with prairie life. We were living on Berry Rd. at a missionary house that had the whole Little House series. I read them all to Emma (except Farmer Boy, b/c who wants to read a story about a boy? I know, I know, it's every one's FAVORITE. I'll read it one day!). Ever since then we have played pretend prairie girl a whole lot, and every time we eat maple syrup Emma suggests we pour it on snow.
I wish you could have seen the day she learned there was a tv show. She was so excited she cried. :)
So, it was no surprise she picked to dress as Laura. My only problem is we had nothing to wear! Luckily our neighbor girl has an affinity for prairie girl culture as well.
