On February 17, 2017, Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers took a field trip out to the Audubon State Historic Site for Jane Austen Day. When we arrived, we realized they had changed the day to a War of 1812 day, which did not disappoint my boys at all. We walked through their welcome center and museum, and my boys enjoyed the hands on exhibits. Outside, on the grounds, they had stations set up with re-enactors to tell about the daily life of people during the time period of the war. They included a cooking station, a bullet making station, a weapons station, an infantry station, a games stations, and a medicinal herbs and plants station. We also had the opportunity to walk through the kitchens and home of Oakley plantation. Afterwards, we picnicked with our friends on the grounds. It was a slightly chilly, educational, and fun day.
