CHAPTER 6: "MOVING IN"
*Give your comments on this Chapter [read]
The Ingalls move inside the little house. No more living in the wagon [dance]
I like the following description of the house:It was a pleasant house. A soft light came through the window holes, and every crack in the four walls glowed a little because the sun was overhead.
I love the descriptions Laura/Rose gave when they wrote about the light of the sun and the moon. Here is a description of the house at night.Mary and Laura lay in their little bed on the ground inside the new house, and watched the sky through the window hole to the east. The edge of the big, bright moon glittered at the bottom of the window space, and Laura sat up. She looked at the great moon, sailing silently higher in the clear sky.
Its light made silvery lines in all the cracks on that side of the house. The light poured through the window hole and made a square of soft radience on the floor. It was so bright that Laura saw Ma plainly when she lifted the quilt at the door and came in.
The house was simple, but it was so beautiful to Laura and everybody because they made it themselves... they saw all the hard work that had to be done in order for them to have a house, 4 walls to feel protected in... Laura sounds so happy in her new house. :)
