Buscando a Lincoln - part 2

As part of our study of Abraham Lincoln, I wanted to take the kids to Lincoln's New Salem. We had tried to go in April, but the risk of rain was too high, so we postponed our visit. (I didn't want to drive nearly 2 hours, only to be rained out!) Then, in June, the family we were going to go with was out of town. Finally, in July, we made it! We ended up going with Tia D and primo A, and had a blast!

A carried around a roly poly for most of the afternoon, and even named it Eddie. 

In school. The school master did a small lesson, and teased me for not being available for lessons since I was busy.      (JL was nursing)

The kids each received their own copybook from the school master.

This little girl was extremely patient the entire day, and then slept the whole way home.

JA really enjoyed this field trip. She read all of the signs, and wanted to explore every bit of the village. We'll have to go back again when her siblings are a bit older and an last for a longer day. It's a good thing we'll study American History in more detail in a few years!
