Beth's Hagley Pics

Yesterday we took a trip to the Hagley Museum in Wilmington, DE. The day started out rainy, and we were afraid that it would continue that way. But, the later it got, the nicer the day became.The view from our rainy window on the trip.My favorite picture of the day. For once, I caught Jason with a normal smile, and not such a posed one.


The next couple of pictures are for my students.

How is this for a drinking fountain?

Mrs. Morford learned how to write with a quill pen. There were no blots, but she did doodle some. Uh-oh, she'll have to redo this paper if the teacher sees it!

The Hagley museum was beautiful. It is a historic black powder mill where the DuPont family made gunpowder. Really, it reminded me in several ways of the old plantations. It was a very interesting museum, and full of hands-on activities. I just wish that it was a little closer so that I could take my students there.




While we were waiting in the drizzle for a bus to take us to the next part of the museum, I saw this 6 point buck come out of the forest and meander through the field. I had to zoom my camera in all the way, and still didn't get a very good picture. It was really neat to watch, though.



This is the view from the front porch of the DuPont home. They lived just off the Brandywine River, and used its power to operate their powder mills. I wouldn't mind having to look at this everyday! Wow!


There were bunches of beautiful scenic spots for pictures.
