Kalamunda History Village

Yesterday we went to Kalamunda History Village with our homeschool kindy group. It rained the entire time we were there but it was such a great day. I can't wait to go back on a dry day so we can stay and do some more exploring. I barely saw Liana while we were there because she adopted our tour guide and her umbrella and stuck to her like glue the whole time!! Even Liam enjoyed it because there was an old steam train and some tools and tractors - what more could a boy want?.

Here are some of the higlights of the day:

Handwashing, wringing and ironing the clothes.

Stencilling labels for fruit boxes.

Washing dishes

Grinding wheat

Checking out the machinery and fire truck

School time. The kids loooooved this part. You can tell they are homeschooled, I think they would've sat in those desks all day. They especially liked trying their hand at writing with an ink pot and pen.

Playing some "olden days" games

And Liam's all time favourite........

The old steam train.

At this point it was pouring with rain and the train was not undercover, but there was no way Liam was going to miss out on driving the train, after all, he had been waiting all morning!! I had to stand in the rain to get these photos and by the time I managed to drag the kids off we were all soaking wet. Needless to say, at that point we headed home!
