A Field Trip to Conner Prairie

Last Tuesday (September 18th) my sister Holly and I took our combined total of ten kids on a field trip to Conner Prairie. We had an enjoyable time but didn't get to see everything so maybe we will attempt it again in the near future.

The finished product.

The kids were all really intrigued by this molding of clay. They even went back a second time to watch him some more.
Samuel carrying water. I for one am thankful for modern conveniences!

Looks like an awesome place to visit. I would have loved to see the potter also.
