My 3 Monsters: Field Tripping

Field Tripping

Yesterday I went with D's class out to Tumbleweed Ranch to learn what life was like 100 years ago in our city.  They had an old Sears and Roebuck house (similar to this one, but not as fancy) on site that they had moved from a location about six miles away and fully restored to it's original condition.  It was fascinating to walk through the tiny little 3 bedroom house (with no indoor plumbing) and imagine the family with nine kids who had built it and lived there.  I don't know if the kids really appreciated how cool it was.  We walked in the front door and D said, "Hey mom, this house is bigger than ours, isn't it?"  Ummmmmm, no.  But ours doesn't beat it by much.  Dylan was excited to learn that kids played with Lincoln Logs back in the day.  He still has a set here at home and he LOVES to build stuff.  The other boys in our group were quite impressed with his fort.  The weather was perfect, the tour entertaining, and they all got a Life Saver from the lady who "owned" the general store.  So, yeah, it was a good day.
