Farm Life, 1900s Style. Where work becomes play.

Never in my life did I think I would hear the Twofer say, Can we do the laundry first? We want to go straight to the laundry!"

I have begged, bribed and cajoled them into helping me simply fold laundry. But wash it? Puhlease!

And yet this weekend we took the girls to a Harvest Festival on a 1900s farm that had stations set up so kids could get to see how hard children their age had to work.

They did laundry using washboards.

Had a school lesson using slate and chalk.

Made hand-dipped candles.

Dug for potatoes.

And churned butter.

Unfortunately, the "hard work" and "see-how-lucky-you-are?" lesson was lost on them as they were having too much fun doing laundry, writing on slate with chalk, dipping candles, digging for potatoes, and churning butter. {sigh}

Here's the Whrrl story:
