We love a good field trip and this one was made for our study of early colonial times. We learned about all the chores that had to done on a farm. We made some music with a washboard, spoons, and a metal triangle. The kids had lessons in panning for gold, archery, cider -pressing, apple tree farming, etc.
The big boys, Jack, Everett, and Kibru donning aprons for some old- fashioned farm chores.
Mackenzie and Harper coring apples to slice
to build a log cabin, of course.
Pounding coffee - she enjoyed this a little too much
Pressing apples for cider
Finally, picking some ripe ones to take home.
