When we got to Mr. Frank's we were so excited to find that he's a blacksmith as well and had all sorts of armor out for the kids to touch, try on, and learn about. L-bug was the only kid to try on everything, but the boys warmed up by the end.
This is my favorite picture of Miss bug from this field trip, with the snaggle tooth its just perfect.
From the suit of armor he asked if the kids could hold a weapon. After going over the rules of no swinging, etc., he stood close and handed the kids a broadsword and a morning star. The glint in L-bug's eye when he held out the broadsword was precious, but eluded the camera.
and Ro-bear quite liked the anvil and wanted to take it home with her. She worked very hard trying to unscrew it, but we didn't let her of course.
All in all this was a very wonderful field trip and I think everyone had fun. After this field trip L-bug bought a leathercrafting kit and is working on learning some leather crafting, so far she's not half bad.
