Brocksden School

 In the end of May we took a class trip with our homeschool group to the Brocksden School Museum.  What an amazing day!! A wonderful woman comes in a re-enacts a day of school in a one-room schoolhouse back in the 1800's.  She was a student in a one-room school herself and, later on, a teacher in the public school system and she does a phenomenal job! I learned so much from her in that one day. In our group we had students in each grade, from K to 8, and she balanced all their lessons, used the older students to help the younger ones, and kept every one busy through out the morning and afternoon. I'm not sure who had the most fun - the teacher, the students, or us parents! Regardless, it was an incredible experience and I'm so thankful Gracie, Silas and I had the opportunity to go. The school itself had been restored immaculately with many of the original contents and I found myself feeling very nostalgic for a time that is so very far away from the the busy, plugged-in lives we live today. Here's a few pictures from our time there. Feel free to cue the 'Little House on the Prairie' soundtrack in your mind and enjoy! :)
