We decided to visit Colonial Williamsburg, VA during this trackout because mini#1 has been learning about the first colonists is social studies in 4th grade this year. The first day and first pics below are from the Jamestown Settlement where John Smith settled. It was so peaceful there. The other pics are various shots taken in Williamsburg. It really is a working "city." They make the shoes worn, clothes worn, baskets, food, etc...and projects are even commissioned for the Smithsonian Museums we learned in a wood shop where a cart was being made. The boys really enjoyed the re-enactments and walking in the church where George and Martha Washington once worshipped. Today there are 5 services held every Sunday. Another highlight was driving through the college of William and Mary, America's 2nd oldest university (Harvard being 1st). Fun, quick vacation. Mini#1 bought a scrapbook and busily took notes, sketched and attached pictures to remember the trip. Of course the indoor pool at the hotel was also a highlight for them!
