The dining room has surprised me by becoming one of my favorite rooms so far. My stuff and the new things we've added have come together nicely! I love the chairs, the light fixture that started it all, and the bar we made from a post we found in the chicken coop. It used to be part of the back of the house. So we cut it down and made a bar. I love that it was part of the house's past.
I was able to chaperone on a field trip for Jack's class this past week, and what a great time we had. There were two farm sites to visit - an 1850s site that included a dugout and hovel and cabin and then a 1930s site that was more modern. Very fascinating to see how people survived when first coming to MN. It was so much fun, and Jack got to milk a goat!
