After we left the Badlands, we stopped at a little place called “The Ranch Store” where you can buy nuts and feed them to the prairie dogs.
Prairie dogs, by the way, are really darn cute. Especially when they’re eating nuts. That I’ve fed them.
Kai went around putting a nut in each prairie dog hole, as a “surprise treat” for them.
After that, most of the rest of our trip was pretty… flat? uneventful? full of cornfields and wind turbines? Maybe we were just exhausted, but it was not an exciting drive. The only “exciting” part was that, somewhere along the way, Kai started breaking out in hives from the hotel bedding (we use special detergent at home) so we had to have him sleep on top of one of our blankets from home.
We WERE excited to get to Indianapolis, though. And now, we’re exploring the area, joining homeschool groups, slowly making friends. It’s different, for sure, but living here is going to be another big adventure.
