This was a fun field trip we took last month to Historic Alamance for their Colonial Living Days. They do a wonderful job with this event and I highly recommend attending if you are in the area.
We had reason for this outing to be even more special for us as we had friends join us. Christopher's roommate, Joe, had his family visiting. We met in August and really hit it off. I was so excited that they were able to join us! It was sweet to share our day together. I wish I had gotten a good picture of all of us. I also wish we had been able to hang out even longer as we enjoy them so much.
We learned about how cider is made and some of the children helped with the press.
Fun morning! Its my favorite way to learn history. History is fascinating. Its stories about people and places. I have loved learning more about the past and the people that made a difference in how we live our lives today. Learning by watching, exploring and experiencing is a great way to make the lessons your own instead of something that gets lost in a book.
More of the promised pictures - hopefully soon. :-)
