Another fun thing we have done this summer, is attend an event at the Heritage Farmstead Museum. They had volunteers on hand to teach the kids about what life was like before modern conviences were invented, such as electricity and running water! They got to peek into a one room school house, practice carrying pails of water by the creek, use a weaving machine, see animals such as goats, pigs, and donkeys, take a hay ride, and even milk a fake cow! They also made butter and homemade ice cream! It was really fun for them and they did not want to leave!
