Blazing New Uses for our Entry Way

I always thought that our entry way was the most unused, largest waste of space in our home  – until recently.  Two weeks ago, our entry way was altered to accommodate several events during our indoor winter Olympics.  Then, last week, it was transformed into a trail ready for our pioneers to blaze!pioneer girls

Where the trail begins… Independence, Missouri (aka the front door).

The ‘Rocky Mountains’ and a river for the wagon train to bravely cross…

Where the trail splits – Will the pioneers head to Oregon or to California?  (Most of the pioneers in our home decided to follow the California trail to the living room to see if they could be successful at panning for gold!)

And, of course, the covered wagon!

What will our kiddos think of next?
