Bell School

We recently joined our homeschool co-op on a really cool field trip to a one room school house called the Bell School.  The sweet couple that runs this donations-based school house, took us through an authentic 1900’s school day. Having lived this way themselves, they led us through the day with passion and a love for the way things “used to be.” We walked away from the day with a greater appreciation for simplicity AND the modern conveniences we now enjoy today.

This is how they washed their hands before lunch.

For fun, they got to play with wooden toys, hoops and stilts.
