I'm Going To Be A Pioneer!!!!
In the most exciting news I've received in a while, I got a call today from The Genesee Country Museum , a local living history museum, and one of the largest in the country, letting me know that my husband and I have been chosen to participate in their Pioneer House Experience!!! My daughter is too young to participate at this time.
For those of you who watched the PBS series, Frontier House, the experience will be much the same. We will go and live for a weekend at the museum as true pioneers (AND I EVEN GET TO DRESS UP!!!!) Open Hearth Cooking, Animal husbandry, Butter making, Food Preservation, etc...... We were chosen to participate in October so we will be having a harvest celebration. The dates are October 15th and 16th. We need to report the weekend before to learn all we need to know about pioneer living in a one day workshop (hopefully this does not include slaughtering your own hog because I don't think my husband is up to that!)
We get to sleep at the museum which I think is very neat and everyone who comes will be able to see us in all of our pioneer glory.
Unfortunately, I think they will make me leave the clothes when I go back home.
