Handcart Trek


At the end of the school year, the entire 4th grade participates in a handcart trek. Owen had a great time helping pull the handcart, crossing a small stream, and learning how to throw an atlatl. He did not want to eat the lunch provided (beef stew, corn bread, and peach cobbler), so when I went up to Mitchell Hollow to serve lunch I brought him a lunch from home so he wouldn't starve. Poor kid would never have made it as a pioneer!
