Wilmington DE

We tore ourselves away from Danielle's farm and drove to Wilmington to visit the Hagley Museum. This museum features old buildings and machinery from the DuPont powder mill located on the Brandywine river. When Scotty was just a few months old Chris and I visited here and baby Scotty was already fascinated by the steam engine, wheels, and authentic machine shop with all its spinning pulleys and belts. He was no less fascinated this time, although sadly we arrived too late to watch the steam engine run.

Hi Jenny! I found your blog through Madeline's Barn-Raising blog. I'm so envious of your month long trip - something I have always said we should do with the kids. Take advantage of the fact they aren't locked up in the school all day, right? We also unschool, with a few pages of math here and there - strictly to satisfy my neurosis - the kids tolerate it. We also run an organic vegetable/flower farm with a small CSA and sell at farmers markets. I look forward to reading your blog.

Have a great day.
