We had a great time at Rose Hill Manor today. The children learned what it was like to live long ago. They especially enjoyed playing with the toys from long ago. We visited the manor house where we played in the parlor and learned about who lived at Rose Hill. We also visited a bedroom and the kids' room and playroom. There was a room where the children learned about how fabric was made and even got to try out carding that we learned about when we read Charlie Needs a Cloak. We visited the kitchen in the manor house and enjoyed popcorn made over the open fire as well as mint tea from the Rose Hill garden behind the manor house. We went to the log cabin that is also on the property. A family of nine lived in the cabin. We also visited the blacksmith shop and an ice house. Ask me to tell you about my trip!
The docents at Rose Hill Manor were so impressed by the kindergarten classes from Bells Mill. The children were very well-behaved and actively listening and answering questions. They were so respectful of the toys they were allowed to play with and so gentle in playing the old piano.
Thanks to our the parents who went on the trip with us!
Have a nice evening!
