Another great field trip with Springfield Elementary. We had great weather and lots of fun. Springfield Elementary 4th grade teachers and students did a wonderful job preparing for their day at the Prairie Country School. The kids had blast playing on the big log at recess - who needs playground equipment?

What a fun day with the Kendrick home-school group all the way from McKinney, Texas. The variety in their ages gave us a real feel for an 1890's one-room school. The older kids were great "graduate" students; helping the younger students throughout the day.

Had a fantastic visit from Springfield Elementary last week. The teachers did a great job getting the students prepared for their visit. Everyone looked the part and played the role of an 1890s student so well.
