Country Corral


So they all went away from the little log house.
The shutters were over the windows, so the little house could not see them go.
It stayed there inside the log fence, behind the two big oak trees, that in the summertime
had made green roofs for Mary and Laura to play under.

First of all, THANK YOU for your kind comments about our loss of "Cowboy." He is missed...Today I'm getting caught up on blogs and I once again am totally drawn into your blog. The warmth of the verses and pictures do so much to lift and inspire my soul!

Beautiful Jo.... I loved "Little House on the Prairie"... They just don't offer great TV shows like that much anymore, do they????
Hugs,
Betsy

I just love "Little House". The books and the TV show. Laura Ingalls was a great story teller.

I checked that book out from the library the other week. Can't wait to introduce it to my kids.

Can you imagine clearing the land and building a log cabin? I think about that often, how my husbands ancestors cleared the trees from this farm and built their first home. Eleven people lived in that first cabin....before Indiana was even a state. I love reading Larua Engles Wilder, she paints a realistic picture in my mind of what those times were like.
