We would not have succeeded as pioneers. It's been gorgeous, so I took the kids out in the red wagon they got for Christmas and Caroline cried all the way around the block, in spite of her big brother holding her so sweetly (seriously, you've gotta see it to believe how sweet on this girl he is) and her looking so adventurous in her hat. Eli refused to get out of the wagon when we got home. I only had enough energy to go around the block once. So I take it back, maybe Patrick would have made a good pioneer; he's the only one who made it from start to finish without a complaint.
