According to my special days calendar, June 25 is Log Cabin Day, a day to appreciate the historic importance of log cabins. And it’s a day to remember what life was like a couple of hundred years ago when things weren’t so easy. Log cabins will be the topic of our homeschool/summer school lesson of the day.
We will go here for some general information and history about log cabins. Western Expansion: Log Cabin

E, B, and I will watch an episode of Frontier House, a PBS documentry from a few years ago. It featured modern families who agreed to try homesteading like the pioneers would have in the 1800’s. (Some of the dialog may not be appropriate for younger children, so I’m hoping to distract Z and J with their Lincoln Log set.)
I loved Frontier House. I think we tend to romanticize life in log cabins, but life was hard. Still the same, I dream of it. Happy Log Cabin Day!
Thanks Kris and Happy Log Cabin Day to you too 🙂
