We've dove in. We are adding it to our school days. We've watched the entire first season and found the second season at the library. We've made night caps, and I'm currently tackling the biggest sewing project ever. Prairie dresses. Which are going to double as their halloween costumes this year. With their own money they bought bonnets at the Amish store. We found free paper dolls at this site here.
I really love it too. They lived in such a simple time. Not that life wasn't hard for them. But look at the things they didn't have. Junk mail, computers and phones to waste their time, name brand clothes... They lived off the land and if they didn't have it they went without. They had manners! Their kids could walk to town without fear of being stolen! Can you imagine?!
It's a dream world compared to reality. But I say let them be little as long as possible. So we're going to keep on dreaming as long as we can.
