oh, happy day. we joined up with our new homeschool group of friends at riley's farm in oak glen. we partook in a colonial life tour of the farm. it was amazing. the grounds were breathtaking. our group was given an explanation of an activity by a farmer in period clothes, using historical grammar and accent. we had some time to engage in the activity, until we heard the sound of the bell. and then on to the next adventure. our very exciting activities included: candle making, pressing apples for cider, churning butter, writing with quills, a lesson in manners + dance, weaving, colonial games and eating a delicious caramel apple. it was a most memorable day.
