School Days

A few weekends ago the kids and I went to the 300 year anniversary of a church in Valley Forge where they had all sorts of “back then” events.  They were a part of a “real” muster in the Continental Army!

   
These are their “scary” faces!

    There was free pumpkin spice icecream from the Franklin Fountain in Philadelphia… absolutely delicious!  Then we “met” David Jones, who was the pastor of the church at the time of the American Revolution.  He was one of the first chaplains in Washington’s army and helped in gathering supplies for the Valley Forge encampment.  Pretty cool!

Last, but not least, there was a real sword fight!  I love spending fun with my kids like this!
