De Smet, South Dakota

We are somewhere in Minnesota. We stopped in De Smet, South Dakota to visit the homestead of the Wilders (Little House on the Prairie). We were able to see some of what life was like for the early settlers. We rode in a wagon to "school" where the teacher talked to us about prairie life. Greg was disciplined by the teacher for not doing his chore of fetching the water for the day! He had to stand with his nose against the blackboard. The kids liked the baby kittens the most...go figure! There was also a calf and foal to see. We made cornhusk dolls and the kids made their own rope.
