Pioneer Camp

Poppet spent the final week of her summer holidays in a bonnet and pinafore at Black Creek Pioneer Camp.
She did apprenticeships with the tinsmith, the tailor, and the printer. She did some spinning and tufting and played lots of old-fashioned games. There's even a bruise under her armpit from the stilts.
This was an incredibly good experience for her, she learned so much about pioneer times. Naturally, her main interest was in the chamber pots. Did you know the youngest member of the family has to empty them?
Nice.
Here are some shots...










Yes, it was very hot. And yes, she got very carsick on the way to camp every morning but she pushed through and had a great time. We're super proud of her.
Grade 3 next week. Gulp!
