Walla Walla Fieldtrip with Erin


old stage coach and Erin by the Lewis & Clark exhibit

Last Friday I got to go on the 4th grade field trip with Erin to Ft. Walla Walla and the Whitman Mission. They have been reading and studying about this in their class for several weeks. It was only 90 degrees that day so it was a perfect day for walking around. It was interesting and informative. Erin thought all the beaded dresses were pretty and bought a kit to make her own beaded purse. She was enthralled with the old combine and that it had to be pulled by over 30 horses and had 5 men on it. Her Papa's combine has an enclosed cabin, air conditioning, a radio and padded seat. She said, "Wow, Papa has it easy."

Yeah, I can't wait to read more about your family. Did you ever sell your house? I'd buy it if I had a reason to live in WA :)
