On October 4th we went downtown to the New Bern Historical Society for a homeschool field trip to hear some history on the Tuscarora Indian tribe. It was a whole afternoon of information and fun. We learned things like what types of homes and foods they made as well as their music and traditions. We were also able to see some artifacts from our local area that were once used by the native tribe.
Afterwards, we picked up Aiden and the Wehrmans and headed to Goldsboro to see Melissa's Mama & Daddy's new restaurant Smiths Eagles Nest Diner for lunch. It is super duper yummy. We highly recommend it! When our tummies were filled we headed to the Wayne County Fair. It was a long and fun-filled day!
A lesson in Tuscarora history
Checking out some really neat artifacts, but really sick of hearing about millions of years and evolution...
Learning a song, that STILL gets stuck in our heads, "boom diddy yadda boom"
My favorite part; snack making time. This was a yummy honey and nut snack that we got to grind ourselves.
silly David's turn
This is a deer vertebrae (if I remember correctly) with an arrowhead stuck in it. Pretty neat.
Checking out all the animals at the Wayne County Fair. This little guy was so cute.
This little guy is so cute too, I think I'll keep 'em :)
The whole farm. Checkout the look on our cow's face -silly Kristen
Sweet little Kylee girl working on the farm.
Learning how to milk a cow; sort of.
Aiden gives it a try
My camera doesn't take very good pictures in the dark, but this horse was trained to do tricks I have only seen dogs do. It was great! He is sitting on command in this picture.
Phew, tired of playing blog catch up yet? There is a lot more to come and I had better hurry because tomorrow is coming quickly~
