My daughter's school is doing a reinactment of the Oklahoma Land Run. Her "family" is to be known as the Cowgirls. We embellished t-shirts with cow print fabric and made a covered wagon. The girls were all in on the tees, but they fizzed out on me during the wagon construction. Never fear, super crafty mom took care of it. Actually, I think that I had the most fun.
Oklahoma is known as the Sooner state. Warning....a bit of history lesson is about to be typed. Waaaaay back in 1889, Indian Territory was opened to settlers. There were lots and lots of people lined up at the border and once the signal was given, they ran or rode in to claim their piece of land. Some settlers sneaked in early and thus, became known as the Sooners. Is this a great state or what?
