Little House in the Big Woods

The kids and I just finished Little House in the Big Woods, so we decided to go visit Pepin, WI and Laura Ingalls Wilder’s birthplace.

We visited the museum in town and visited the cabin (reproduction) on the original homestead.

We visited the shore of Lake Pepin and collected rocks, just like Laura. Unlike Laura, we did not collect so many that we tore the pocket out of our skirts. The museum gave the kids little bags to put the rocks in.

While at the museum we picked up a new passport. We’re pretty excited to add more stamps.

On our way home we stopped in Decorah to have coffee with my niece.

It was a long day of driving, but it was filled with fun and the audio book of Little House on the Prarie.

      1. It is a book series that has a lot to it. There’s a lot of American history in there, albeit of a very one-sided nature. And you are doing a lot to sort of build on that and present the other side. And it’s interesting reading about how people lived.

  1. Oh my goodness – I LOVED Little House on the Prairie when I was a kid – I read the books and faithfully watched the TV show! I will never forgot from one of the books the series in which they took a bath (all sharing the same water) – first the kids, then Ma, then Pa. I always think – ewwww – Pa had to bathe in everyone else’s water! (okay funny the things you remember reading).
