A Step Back in Time

Okay, who knows what was happening in this country between 1861-1865?

If you said the battle between the states, you are correct! And this weekend in Hope, Arkansas (birthplace of President Bill Clinton) the Civil War is happening all over again

We had the best time today, and if I didn't have to get up and leave the house before the rooster in our freezer crowed I'd go back tomorrow. We were able to see how the men and women dressed, what they ate and how they had to live during the war. We have been to a number of different living history museums, but this one was really exciting. The children were very attentive to what the soldiers said, and the soldiers were very accommodating to the kids. You can read more about the weekend here.

I'm off to Costa Rica....
