Many homeschool field trips to Jamestown Settlement to visit the three ships and the Indian Village created lasting memories for the kids through the years. Of all the different places we've lived in Virginia, Williamsburg is where they spent their growing up years and the place they most remember.
Here's a very young Jonathan trying his hand at grinding maize. Whenever we see pictures of Jonathan with his blue "D" cap on, we automatically think of Doctor Doley's Dodgers, his softball team, which brings back lots of sitting and rooting on the bleacher memories.
Below is a picture of all four kids aboard the Susan Constant, taken around 1995. What a young crew!
The local Jamestown Ferry leaves several times daily to cross the river just down and over from where the three ships are docked. We often would board and enjoy the 20-minute ride across, turn around, and ferry right back feeding the seagulls as we journeyed. Big doings on a Saturday evening in rural Virginia!
Well, that's all the memories I have time for this morning. Lots to do as we have company arriving tomorrow--the Hayden Family from Kansas on their way back home from the Jamestown 400th Anniversary Celebration!!
So, we'll get to hear first-hand all about this exciting week. If you've been following Caleb's blog you know their days have been packed full of interesting excursions and speeches on God's providence through history. We're looking forward to meeting the Haydens after being introduced to them through blogging! (Sounds like another post for sure!)
Hope you have a good Saturday and a great Father's Day weekend!
