We had a great day at Howick Historic Village yesterday.  The kids were awesome, so well behaved as were most of the home-schooled children.  They also had the most amazing time learning about history by being involved in it ... its incredible how hands-on learning provides so much more understanding than just standing, listening, reading, and writing.  This was truly a day where the education and the ability to home-school my children was so rewarding.  They learnt everything from washing duties, ironing, the foundation of nursery rhymes, and the types of homes that were waiting for those that made the voyage from Ireland.  Incredible stuff, and I can't thank the people at the village enough for their care in teaching and their passion for passing on knowledge.  AWESOME DAY >>> AWESOME :)
