I wanted to tell all of you about our Travel Day. We had such a great time. Boo has asked if we can have an all Amish day at home soon. I think we might try that very soon. It sounds like fun & I am happy she suggested it.
We had 4 families attend on Monday. With us that made 5 families! Our numbers came to 18 children & 5 moms. I was very happy. We had an age range of 1year to 16 years. Also very neat. I love to watch all the kids joining in no matter what their age. Due to swimming lessons that afternoon we ran out of time for the candle making. The books & articles I had read said it would only take 1/2 an hour but the kit said more like 2 hours. We decided we would schedule a candle day soon at Nancy's house.
We began our time by reading this book together. I absolutely love the illustrations.
Next it was hands-on time! The children had many choices and jumped in.
