Happy late Pioneer Day everybody! It was last Friday, July 24. In Utah, it is a state holiday, set aside to honor the pioneers who entered the Salt Lake Valley on that day in July of 1847. I love this above video reminder about how we are all pioneers. We are each braving new territory, especially psychological, as we navigate this strange pandemic world.
To celebrate, we listened to pioneer stories over zoom from family members from Utah and Maine. I bribed the the kiddos to listen by promising homemade ice cream afterwards. Then the next day we did the same with my husband’s side, hearing stories from his mom.
