Marblehead Glover's regiment
~ ~ ~
I had my granddaughters over the weekend!
On Saturday we went to Fort Sewell where the Marblehead Glover's regiment (Revolutionary war reenactors) were having an encampment. It looked much like it might have during revolutionary war times when Fort Sewall was actually in use. There was cannon firing, marching, and mock battles. We stayed away from those things but we did have a lovely little girl and her mother make us two sweet little corn husk dolls. Of course, we also got some candy sticks and lemonade!
We did some guitar playing and dancing at home with my husband.
Abby loves the way her dress twirls but Natalie is more of a break-dancing kind of a girl.
We painted and we played with stickers.
I was back at work come Monday and have had a very, very long week with new toddlers in my
classroom! One of them just moved from Japan, speaks no English, and had never been in care
or been away from her mother before!
She has bonded to me, which I am happy for, but she cries for her mama all day and more so
if I have to use the bathroom or go to my lunch.
Even the other children in the room have started saying "Kudo" which means coming
when she cries for her mama!
I can't even tell you how happy I am that it's Friday!
My poor husband wanted a hug last night and I told him to step back.
