I live in Bozeman, Montana about an hour away from Yellowstone National Park. We canceled my family’s spring break trip because of the Coronavirus outbreak.

It’s true that Laura didn’t grow up in Montana, but that didn’t stop me. Despite the fact I have survived some blizzards, “Mom Camp” made me face a difficult truth. I have nothing in common with my childhood hero, Laura Ingalls Wilder.
