The children and I had a wonderful time
as we went on our little trip today.
We visited a colonial palace
that was built between 1767 and 1770,
and used as the first permanent capitol
of the Colony of North Carolina
and a home for the Royal Governor and his family.
We had a lovely time!
We learned a little about basketweaving,
watched a colonial concert,
toured the shop, the grounds, and the garden.
We played colonial games,
witnessed a dramatic reading of the
1st reading of The Declaration of Independence,
listened to the drum and fife band,
wax sealed our own Declaration of Independence,
saw a colonial hanging and tea party,
and visited with the colonials
(including other homeschoolers).
I took quite a few photos
so thought it best to share them in a slideshow.
We truly did have a lovely time!
