We enjoyed a rather warm trip to the Eidem family Homestead, a farm from over one hundred years ago.

The kitchen was the warmest room, since it had the wood burning stove. Each child also got a chance to sit in the washtub and see the kerosene lamp.
|A favorite spot--seeing the hens lay eggs!|
|Everyone got a chance to use their muscles and pump water. Being part of a pioneer family is hard work!|
Thank you to all our parent volunteers! We hope you had as much fun as the children did!
