Chloe (6): I’d like to get a horse. I’m going to learn to be a cowgirl.
John (4): Chloe no. A horse is too much responser-bility and they cost lots of money. Maybe you could get a fish. They don’t cost lots of money and then you could just be a fish girl.
Chloe: Olesons are the richest people in Walnut Grove. Nellie had a horse.
John: Olesons are really awful people ‘cept Nels. Poor Nels has bad children and a bad mother.
Chloe: You mean a bad wife?
John: Yes. Good thing we don’t have a bad wife.
Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine…
These little people sure make this mama’s heart merry.
