We had fun playing the board game that came with the set of Caroline books.
We had bean soup and cornbread for lunch. We made butter to go with our cornbread, and it was delicious.
The girls dipped their feet in "Lake Ontario." It was COLD, so we didn't stay out for long (this time last year we were already swimming...I don't like the weather this year!)
The girls had fun dressing up, and O(6) was especially excited to wear her new hoop skirt. E(3) danced with her corn husk doll, and we attempted (without success) to make hankerchief dolls. O(6) and E(3) recited poetry, and O wouldn't let me take pics since there were no camera phones in 1812 and she's a stickler about authenticity. This was a fun day, and I can't wait for our Marie-Grace/Cecile party that is coming up soon (we had to postpone due to the terrible viruses that have struck the girls recently)!
