Emma and her Pioneer Journal project

This year Emma decided she needed a break from our American History encyclopedia. Emma and I talked about lots of ideas, and we were both happy about the idea of her typing up and illustrating a journal from my ancestor Charles Sansom, who crossed the plains to SLC in 1852 . It’s been a fun project and I’ve loved watching her learn about the era and look up things on wikipedia so she knows how to draw them. 🙂

Here are a few sample pages of her work so far:
