Yesterday we went on a field trip to the Historical Museum of St Jame-Assiniboia. There we toured the William Brown house — an authentic Red River Frame home built in 1856.
The children were fascinated by the artifacts and the life of the pioneers. They were most interested by the kitchen and all its amazing gadgets. The most horrifying aspect was sharing a small room — and bed — with as many as four other family members.
They all agreed that although it was fun to visit, they would not like to be pioneers.
