On Friday, we traveled back in time 150 years or so.
Being able to choose your field trips is one benefit of homeschooling. Since our daughters enjoy history, we attended Living History Day at Boone Hall Plantation. Re-enactors were dressed in period garb and talked with us as though we were walking through their camp during the 1860’s.
Being girls, we were enamored by the ladies in their hoopskirts. We also learned about some of the schooling methods used during that time period.
Other highlights included dipping candles, sewing stitches in a quilt, seeing what a field hospital would have been like, and hearing a Civil War-era cannon fired.
Sometimes, spending a day in the past makes for good memories in the present!
