“Founder’s Day”



Walnut Grove celebrates this great day with several different competitions. There are very competitive spirits between the Olesons and the Ingalls.















Love this episode! I thought it was funny how Laura kept going to the Olesons to tell them that they were going to win the contest… lol Loved the rope contest and the three legged race contest, those 2 were my favorite :)
I was also rooting for Jim to win the contest against Charles. Jim has such a sweet woman for a wife, it was great of her to talk to Charles and Charles did the best thing he could… it was fair that way. Lesson of the episode: Winning isn’t everything, it’s trying your best and having fun at it. Thumbsup

I have mixed feelings about parts of this one. Overall, I love the episode, but I don't know how I feel about Jim's character. Sure, he may have been "bull of the woods" one day but I didn't like how he bragged so much and tried to make himself better than Charles. I would've had a hard time doing what Charles did. Jim did have such a caring wife though, it must have been hard also for her to go and talk to Charles, all out of the love for her husband. I loved Caroline and Laura winning the 3-legged race though, and Nels and Charles both ending up in the mud! LOL too funny.

I enjoyed the episode. I liked the ending when Pa explained to Laura why he used the old axe.

It has been so long since I have seen this episode all the way through. I will have to watch that now and look out for it. I really don't even remember that happening.

I loved this episode. I don't think the older man was really so terrible....he was actually struggling so much with growing older, like his wife explained. That was why he was so arrogant....because in reality he knew he was not really so tough anymore. I liked that we saw his softer side with his wife, and even in the end I felt like he softened up towards Charles. I'm glad that Charles did it the way he did, and I think his explanation to Laura is a good one - that it really did make things more equal between him and the older man.

I loved this whole episode. It was nice to have a season finale where there was no major tragedy and mainly just a lot of fun.

The little band cracked me up, the way they kept marching around and playing.

Yes, Amyk, you're right. The poor old man was not accepting he was becoming old, and this was the main reason for his behavior.
I think that it was hard to Charles to do what he did, and more hard to Laura to accept that her Pa was not always a hero who could so everything he wanted to, better than anyone in the world. It is the moment of childhood in which children begins to realize that their parents are like everyone else, with they weakness and their strenght.

I agree with you.I guess it's hard for some people to grow old.

I like this episode a lot, but there is one serious anachronism. The band is heard playing "The Washington Post March", which was composed by John Philip Sousa in 1889. Oops!

I like this episode. Laura running to tell the Olesons what event they were doing and saying were going to win was funny. I didn't care for Mr.Tyler.

I really think that Charles wanted to show ol' "Bull of the Woods" what a "Bull of the Mouth" he was. I think Charles got wrapped up in the competitiveness of the day just as Caroline with the pies and the girls with the contest did.
Then when Mrs Tyler explained to Charles that Tim was the way he was because he was having a tough time accepting old age, I think Charles handled it in the fairest way possible. He could have said, "Oh, I strained my shoulder, I need to drop out." That would have been like throwing the contest. Instead, switching the axes made it a more even race. Charles was young and ripped, of course he could have won one more heat.
Also, Laura learned a good lesson in action from her Pa.
