Yesterday I went with Chase and his Class to the Harn Homestead. It is a family farm from the land run that has been turned into a museum. They let the kids go into the school room and see how, in 1897, kids had school. Some of the rules for teachers were.....
no riding in a buggy with someone other than her brother or father.
no dying her hair
no wearing bright colors
she had to be at her home from 8pm to 6am unless it was a school function
no keeping of a male (oh how times have changed)
They next went to the barn where they were able to take the kernels off the cob of corn, separate the corn kernels and grind the corn.
they also cleaned out a horses stall, sawed wood, and planted lettuce
after that they went into the farm house. The kids played in the kitchen and got to play a piano
I rode the bus and almost wet my pants because of all the bumps in the road. TMI (to much information)
