Wordful Wednesday – Riley’s Farm

Wordful Wednesday 411Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

I got to visit Riley’s Farm (living history farm) with Emma last week on a field trip.  We spent the day re-living the struggle for independence.  It was so fun to have history come alive with mock battles, hands-on stations and challenges designed as if we were living during the time of the Revolutionary War.

  3. Sure do! It blows my mind to see how far we have come. I can’t even imagine living back then. We are truly a lucky bunch. Seems like things were so much simpler. Maybe not? lol

  4. How fun! I love the garden. And I am always fascinated by butter churning!

  5. Looks like a wonderful day! I remember a similar field trip when my daughter was in 4th grade to St Augustine. It was a long day on a bus full of kids, but St Augustine was beautiful!

  6. Beautiful!! I want to go there now!

  7. I would love to go there. I just love historical places.

  8. I’ve always wanted to visit a place like this! It looks like a ton of fun.

  9. We have a living history farm/museum near us and all of us love to visit! Looks like a super fun day!

  10. We have a few places like this around Michigan and even though I’ve been to them many times I still like going again and again. My kids… not so much.

  11. I love school trips like that and the history lesson they offer. We have a similar village here called Cracker Country.

  12. My parents and 2 of my brothers do this. They get right into the roles. I think it’s great because it gives not only the kids, but adults perspective of what happened. It’s entertaining and educational. WIN

  13. that reminds me of a place here called the Agrirama
