Temperatures were in the sunny 50s and the signs of spring were all around: greening grass, blooming daffodils, and a sun angle that screamed equinox.
This meant it was a perfect time to take my girls to the Chrisholm Historic Amish Farmstead about 30 miles north of Cincinnati, a restored home and grounds that preserves a piece of the area's Plain past. A wonderful "natural play" area is on the grounds and on Sunday afternoons they have a "Show and Tell on the Farm" program with a different theme each week to engage and inform kids. This past week's topic was about plowing.
Aster (Bea's still a bit too young) got to run a plow, plant some seeds, and a learn a lot. And then it was on to Chrisholm's natural play area with slides and sandboxes, and rocks to climb. An amazing day to celebrate the soon to arrive season of spring!
