It's was such a beautiful morning & the perfect way to kick off the beginning of fall! The sun was out, the temperature was in the low 70s, & we were surrounded by our sweet homeschool friends!
We kicked things off with a train ride to scope out the scene. The Agriculture Museum is like going back in time! All the old buildings & materials are so much fun to look at & make you even more happy you for modern conveniences!! If you're ever in MS I highly recommend checking it out, especially in October or November when they have the cotton gin & saw mill going! During that time they also have a blacksmith working & free, yummy biscuits with syrup!
After walking around we stopped at the old General Store for a break complete with glass bottled cokes & roasted, salted pecans. They were incredibly delicious! The kiddos enjoyed playing checkers with the bottle caps on the porch...though I don't think they really knew what they were doing!
The kids were amazed that cars used to not have seat belts & that the back door opened the opposite way. One of our little friends even asked where the DVD player was! :)
Sweet Chapel just hung out in the carrier I was wearing & napped most of the time. She is such a good baby!!!
Below is a picture of my sweet Rylan & his BFF Thomas.
Somewhere I have a picture of myself in this same, giant rocking chair when I was about 12 or so.
We had such a fun time! I almost talked myself out of not going because I was super sleepy that morning & this was my first major outing with all four kiddos without my awesome Mr. Thankfully they were well behaved & our homeschool group is fabulous! We all look out for each others' kids like they all belong to us.
Have a blessed day sweet readers!
