Summer is over...

and school has begun.

Our first "field trip" was to the James K Polk Historic Site.  While this is a very small museum, it is very family friendly.  The staff are very accomadating and we have never felt rushed as we meander around. 

On this trip demonstrations were going on for black smithing and pottery.  These are currently 2 of the many interests that Daniel and Sarah have.

Here is Sarah at the wheel.  This was her first time working clay on a wheel and she seemed to pick it up quickly.  The man doing the demo recommends that we start with slab work first.
This is most definately a 'not-in-the-house' activity.

This is  Daniel working the forge.
