LBL Homeplace Children's Day

The kids had a great time at Children's Day at the Homeplace!
They carded and spun wool into yarn:

Even Katey could do it!

They picked seeds from the cotton and learned that small farms would not have had utilized the cotton gin for the small amount of cotton they grew for personal use (KY is too far north for commercial production). People on an 1850's farm would have still been doing things "the old-fashioned way."

Laurel loved the horses. I think she could have spent the entire day watching them. Jake seemed to like her as well. Yet another reason I see a little land in our future someday.
