What did some of the kids and I do today?

We participated in October Tour as Docents at Dr Hall's house from the Civil War era. And as a picture is worth a thousand words I will say no more...

Anna and Gabriela in their hoop skirts in front of the house.

Anna sharing the details about the cooking in the kitchen. This is one of the few remaining NC civil war era kitchens that have been restored to their original condition. Nathaniel hung about lending atmosphere to the place.

Here is a group photo of all of us, from the family. who participated today.
It was such a lot of fun!

Little 9 month Cecilia in a 100 yr old dress, the very same that she was baptized in.
Does she not look very period in it?

And this is just a taste of the many wonderful photos my friend at Good Remedy took today. Look for more to come over the next couple of days...

Oh oh!

Elsa was cuddled up next to me this morning and I asked her "Say, do you know where your new brown church shoes are?"

Her response did not inspire confidence: "Oh Mummy, can't we just talk about this tomorrow, pleeease."
