First we picked up Maddie's friend Norah then headed to the local library to hear a talk from Susan Holloway Scott, the author of I, Eliza Hamilton. I think Mrs.Scott had a bunch of fun because Norah and Maddie sat in the front row right in front of the lectern. They were excited to talk about one of their favorite colonial women!
|Yikes! The house is waaaayyyy up there!|
|The torches and lanterns were really neat and it was fun to watch as it got darker.|
|There is the house! In the dark.|
On Sunday we went to the Mabee Farm for the Fall Foliage Festival and worked in the 4H booth selling, what else, strawberry shortcakes! Julia was finally able to join 4H this year and is so very excited to do EVERYTHING that Maddie does. Maddie has been very patient and good about showing her "little sister" around.
