"ruffin it"

While at The Monument the kids got to experience the way the pioneers had to work. Darby did some laundry. When she was done here she hung it to dry, then churned butter and worked in the garden. She was lucky in her shorts. Some of the other pioneer girls were in dresses and aprons.
Dash washes clothes. He got bored fast.
Here was an exercise that showed them how it felt to milk cows. There was a little wooden cow on the ropes and you had to pull the ropes to get them to the top. They had fun racing them.
Juliet loved watching them all!
The pioneers didn't have a ton of toys. This is one way they played.
No one but my dad could do it!
He said he had a set when he was younger.
To much fun!
