Living History Day in Pictures

What an authentic medieval experience we had. I learned so much...wait, it was for the kids. I can honestly say that I will enjoy learning right along side of my girls...I missed so much during school. Made straight As but don't remember a dern thing!

Here are our lady and her majestic queen:

Our little family, me as a "lady in waiting" and Jerry as a monk, or friar.

We met in Lily's class to gather her shield,

And then had a procession out to where we would have a fun filled day of activities...but first we met our twins! Parents of a little boy in Lily's class had our exact outfits!

Jade found some friends...
We observed a code of ethics presented by the 6th graders...

caught a pic of the "royal court" aka headmaster, his wife, and the head of lower school...

saw quite an amazing Maypole dance...

quite a crowd gathered...

one monk took his costume a little more seriously than my hubby...

Thank God! I kind of like his hair!

An evil black knight came and stole the school flag...Jade is still talking about that!

Then we started visiting different stations, the first housed various catapults...

where many poor pumpkins met their demise...

Then it was off to archery...


afterward we stopped for a play...

met the king...
observed a glass blower...

took a sneak peek at the feast layout...


ran into more friends...

then hunted for Lily's shield...


and finally found it!
then it was off to make scented oils...

tried our hand at calligraphy...

did a little dancing...
and then these little blondies had to wait while the big kids...

began to feast!

We did finally get to eat and then said goodbye to friends...
for a week long Thanksgiving break! Boy have we missed our friends this week...school has become an integral part of our lives...so thankful to be on this journey with some amazing people!

Happy Thanksgiving!
