Lilian and Lilianna pack for the 6-month trip on the Oregon Trail
The kids are working with their Job Partners to go through and think about all the items they will need for their trip. They are packing food and housewares that can't exceed 2,400 pounds. They have a budget, but right now are just doing the math to make sure they will have enough food for the trip.
It was an exciting morning when they saw the size of the wagon when I laid out the dimensions with meter sticks to approximate 4' x 10'. There was discussion about the oxen, that as kids they would be leaving behind all that they have now.
They are considering what is really important for a family to travel this far.
