1. Ride ’em cowboys (a Mickey D’s with saddle seats), 2. A piece of history, 3. Home where Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her novels, 4. Reading this for the high school homeschool class I teach. A really good read!
I struggled a bit over what “edition” this Camera Phone Friday should be, until I looked at the pictures: two are from Missouri’s Rocky Ridge Farm, the home where Laura Ingalls Wilder and her husband Almanzo settled down and where her Little House books were written. We stopped there on our trip home from visiting family in Kansas and Missouri. The trip barely begun, the kids sleepy, so only three three youngest, my husband, and I got out to look.
It felt like stepping back in time. I ran my hands up and down the rail and then approached the door to the old farm house, touching the knob. I wanted to believe that writing magic could seep like osmosis, transferring between the things that Laura touched and my fingertips. Hey, it couldn’t hurt, right?
The book about Mother Teresa is called Something Beautiful for God (affiliate link below) and I’m reading it for the Classical Conversations Challenge II (approximately 10th grade) class that I teach. If you want inspiration on how to live less for you and more for Him, this is a good place to find it.
What are you reading now, and what did your camera phone capture this week?
