To quote the snide commenter over at Conversion Diary, I will be publishing some “inane pablum” today.
Because yesterday’s post took too long to write.
And it was just flat-out too long.
And last week was Home Educators’ Week at Colonial Williamsburg (a wonderful, fabulous opportunity, not to be missed! $6.50 admission!).
And I have more photos of the colonial cloaks to show off.
And, although I might be just a little bit prejudiced, I think I have some of the cutest kids around.
In the Palace Gardens.
Roaming the maze in the far back corner of the Palace Gardens. The viewing mount in back actually hides the Palace’s ice house.
Instant tea party. We usually pack a lunch with lots of snacky stuff (sliced apples, cheese, etc.), then buy the $10 free-refills-all-year mug.
Williamsburg opens the Powell House (behind the Capitol Building and usually for school groups only) for Home Educators’ Week. This time, the program was on coloring (an upper-class leisure pursuit, since the crayons and woodblock prints were not cheap) and fashion… including wigs.
Fun and games in the Powell House courtyard. Crash was told he had a better waistcoat than General Washington! (and I was very, very happy to see that the interpreter had a vest, cravat, jacket, and cloak that looked just like Crash’s… except for the gold braid and embroidery)
