a day of celebration!!!
1 October 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

the season 1 finale founders day!! This episode was light and fun and also the only finale that was in this tone all the others were pretty serious. Every body in walnut grove is getting ready for the most famous day "founders day". The day that walnut grove was founded by Lars Hanson. Its a huge day full of games and contests and everyone of the ingalls family are competing at something. Laura:hoop rolling and 3 legged race. Mary:rope jumping. Caroline:pie baking,3 legged race. Charles:tug of war,wood Chopin contest. The episode have a lot of funny moments were almost all futures the Olsen's. This show would not have worked with out them!!! Give this one a look its light its funny and a great way to end the series's first season.

Now continue to season 2. Have fun!!
