The first activity of the day was cross cut sawing.
There were several school groups there and some of the things said by the other children confirmed my decision to homeschool my own. I couldn't believe how disrespectful they were to the volunteers who donated time and skills to give them a glimpse into the past. It really made me very sad. *stepping off soap box*
Griffin needed a little help, but he and Madisyn made a great team.
We purchased some homemade suckers and they were very good. They could have been a bit smaller though - Ben made a horrible mess.
In the one-room school house.
The kids were looking for the queen in the bee hive. We had a great time and didn't even get stuck in the mud ;) . The tractor and Kawasaki Mule served as the "Homestead Tow Truck" - two days before we came through, 2 school buses got stuck!
