Colonial Day at School

                               
                                 My Grandiedaughter Lexie's class held a Colonial Day!

                                    
                                             With Food, and Demonstrations....

The students did a wonderful job...



talking about and showing things from the Colonial times. We had great fun!
I had the great honor to join them!


we had fun learning about Spinning Flax and Wool,




and their preparation.


..~..~..~..~..~..~..~..



Mama Mousiekin is teaching Missy all about spinning.

Missy is doing a marvelous job carding
and preparing the wool for Mama to spin!
 (the boys are just plain "playing" in the background)


..~..~..~..~..~..~..~..


Beloved, I wish above all things 
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health, even as thy soul prosper
 that thou mayest prosper

  7. Sounds like a delightful and educational time! I've never seen flax spun before, so I'll need to come back and view the videos.

    BTW, it was nice to see The Mousekin Family enjoy the colonial days as well. :)
