We took part in butter and book making, calf-roping, faux gold panning (gold-painted rocks) and tin-can lantern making.
We learned a bit about pioneer life in general and in Florida. We were served a tasty venison stew for lunch as well as some homemade sweets and the kids participated in a good old-fashioned three-legged race and a tug-o-war.
The kids were skeptical when we left the house that morning, but when we got in the car to leave they both said, "That was fun." I am still recovering from the shock of them actually eating deer meat!
