yet another busy weekend!

Yep you guessed it! we are on the go again this weekend! Tomorrow we head to the one room school house in Hope, Indiana (by Columbus). We have been before and had a great time. The kids will get to attend school as if it is 1903. They will have a school marm, will have to stand by their desks during roll call, say "yes ma'am" and "no ma'am", use a quill and ink to write with, use the OLD readers, pump their own drinking water from the well, and for recess they will play with the same toys and learn the same games as they did back then. They also get to dress the part:) Sanite has a dress I made for her 2 years back and Noah will be wearing a pair of jeans, flannel shirt, and suspenders. We packed their lunch tonight. This too had to be suited to the period of time. They have 2 small metal buckets to carry their lunch in. They each have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, apple, chunk of cheddar cheese, and a boiled egg.

On top of all this excitement...my baby girl turns 8 on Friday too!!!For her birthday she decided she wanted to go camping so that's where we are headed off to:) After we come home from the one room school house we will head out right then to Versailles state park. When we get there we will go ahead and start cooking her birthday dinner....her choice of ribs, corn, green beans, and of course...birthday cake! We picked the cake up today and it is so cute:) What is it you ask? High School musical of course! Being as I busted our card for the camera...I am headed out to buy a new one tomorrow before we head out so I will take lots of pics and post them on Sunday when we return!!
