“They’re on a Little House on the Prairie kick.” -their mother
I saw these girls at my work today. They were so excited about the bonnets they had gotten at the flea market and said that they had been playing ‘old time games’ ever since.
It was an instant flashback to my childhood, and to all of the adventures my best friend, Mary, and I would go on. She and I lived, ate and breathed the Oregon Trail, an obsession that had stemmed from the computer game. Her mom made us little prairie dresses and we’d tramp around her parents’ 80 acre farm barefoot all summer long.
