Heritage Village

It was a beautiful day yesterday, so Mother and Merritt decided to take a trip over to Heritage Village (similar to Sturbridge Village, but on a much smaller scale). Merritt has a wonderful imagination; she revels in exploring the dramatic side of that by-gone era of simpler and slower lifestyles. She loves to engage whoever is willing to accompany her through the untold deprivations of an orphans life or act out anxious deathbed scenes. Quite the dramatic one. Living like that makes life out to be a great adventure where surprises abound...every day.

So of course, she thoroughly enjoyed the outing! Mom said that as soon as they entered the village she squealed with delight and began rushing here and there to peek into each "time capsule".

Anyway, Mom was able to snap a couple of quick photos before Merritt dashed off to visit the next school house, church or the mercantile.

Merritt mentioned that one of her favorite stops at the Heritage Village was the caboose. Learning can be so much fun!

Hey Chelsea!
Today I went to Heritage Village.It was really fun. There was a Civil War Reactment. I felt like it had burst my ear-drum(s).The stuff that they use to make the big white clouds is flour. The caboosewas closed, as were some houses.There was a fashion show that I didn't bother to watch. Did Merritt do the "picture your self in the past"? I was, but we didn't have time. So yeah.... I went with a friend and her parents. See you on friday!
