Saturday we went to the Appalachian Folk Life Festival at the Explore park outside of Roanoke. It was a gorgeous day to walk around in the woods. The historical content was a little thin, but I think Ella took in enough for a four year old. She brought home a pocket full of wool and washed it on sunday morning and hung it on her clothesline. She is interested in spinning. The high point of the day for her was riding the big yellow school bus.
Sunday we went to a potluck for John's office. The host boards two horses, and Ella loved feeding them grass and going for a walk on Penny. "Bareback", she will say. She was unimpressed with the shy goat.
