We also learned about the Abenaki (the local Native Americans). J and B did quite a good job identifying these fur pelts.
We learned that Vermont children used to help out a lot with chores. They often carried two heavy buckets of water(can't remember if it was 30 or 50 lbs. I think 30. Do you see a trend with my memory!) B is trying to lift just one of them. Those kids must have been strong!And J and B sent a telegraph.
J loved the museum. B kept saying he was bored. But, that's typical for B. If he can't run around, it's boring. Although when his dad asked him how the museum was he said, "Awesome!" Go figure.
We also met my husband for lunch (Mexican-yum, yum). And then the kids ran off to the neighbor's when we got home. It's 8:15 now and they're off riding bikes and plasma cars. Have you ever gone on a plasma car? They are a lot of fun. B went down our street on one with my husband close behind. I almost died. We live on a small hill and he flew down!!! I can see him out the window-looks like he survived. Goodnight!
