Post Office and Mercantile

The Post Office was a fun one...not only a post office but a friendly mercantile as well!
Much like our post offices today. But the letters were a different story. I would absolutely not want to try to decifer what this sweet note is trying to say. To save paper and postage, they would write one direction and then the other direction. Confusing as can be!

The mercantile was a great addition to the post office. Lots of pottery and creative little things to make life just a little easier for the saints.

The recipe below was the Pioneer form of "Gatorade". Think I should give it a try to see what the kids think...they all curled their noses up just a bit at the sight of ingredients!

The kids all took a stab at carrying the water barrels...We laughed when Natalie was up, the barrels didn't even raise off the ground, she's just a smidge too short for this chore, we'd have had to leave this one up to the boys and oldest girls.
