Somewhere between a major headcold and my birthday celebrations, we began a new study of The Boxcar Children. You may have read this series as a child; I apparently was deprived of this fabulous set of books. We are thoroughly enjoying reading and studying this piece of literature.
In the beginning, the children fall asleep inside a haystack. This led to a discussion of farming and the evolution of haystacks to hay bales that we see today. My cyberfriend, Gail, composed a blog post of life on her farm, including excellent pictures of hay. Check it out!
