Fort Ligonier Homeschool Day

We were all set for a wonderful field trip and when we woke up it looked like this:

And since the kids had already been in the kiddie pool this year, we were all shocked by the return of winter. Field trip was postponed, and we made it out to Fort Ligonier a couple days later.

The kids had a great ime exploring the fort with their friends.

Volunteers were in costume to relate historical events.

The kids participated in many activities including drilling and marching.

Henry was so excited to get to march with a rifle. And look at the difference in weather from two days prior!

Malcolm was content watching all around him.

Making a Native American Necklace.

Sometimes I forget all our area has to offer in terms of field trips. It is so easy to get into a mind-set that we have too much going on to participate in these events. The kids had such a good time!

That looks like a fun place to visit! Interesting how the weather can change so dramatically, isn't it?!

How fun! This had been a crazy winter for sure. We never even got any snow in Michigan. My kids were so sad.
