Colonial Christmas Homeschool Day

On Friday, December 12th we attended the Colonial Christmas Homeschool Day at Audubon State Historic Site.  We rotated through different stations discussing colonial times as well as Christmas traditions.

They had 10 different stations for us to rotate through that day.  This was open to all homeschoolers with registration required.  There were 200+ people from BCH represented that day along with other groups.

Afterwards, many of the families stayed to picnic on the grounds.  It turned out to be a beautiful day for picnicking with friends.
