Chloe has been learning about the days of the Pioneer at school and Mrs. Boundas (her amazing teacher) had them all dress up as pioneers for a fun day in the class room. They brought food for a class party that would be served 'way back when' and Chloe was so excited to get dressed up for the event.
Chloe wore the dress that I wore when my teacher held a similar event when I was in Grade 4. Back then, my mother sewed this gorgeous "Laura Ingalls" dress for me and I remember loving the bonnet especially. My mom saved it all these years (thank God, because my sewing skills are null and void) and it was more than a bit nostalgic to see Chloe put in on a few decades later.
Mrs. Boundas sent me this photo from the class room:
