Opening of the Time Capsule--Homeschool week of Sept. 26

I'm pleased with the school work that was accomplished this last week.   We actually did get to sit and work most days of the week.

One highlight of the week was Monday, September 26 when we went downtown to the Memorial Hall for the reenactment ceremony of President Taft placing the time capsule in the cornerstone of the building 100 years ago.  After the reenactment we went inside and watched as they opened the time capsule and showed us the contents.   I love history, especially local history.  This was about a 3 hour event with lots of history.   The first photo is "President Taft" delivering his speech.  The second photo is just some of the items out of the time capsule.

Another highlight of the week was volunteering out time to help  with the German fundraising dinner at our church.  Jasmine did many things, although her main job was to serve drinks.  We love to do our part to help out.  We got to listen to German music played on the accordian and try many new foods.  Jasmine says she did a lot of socializing with people as they came to get drinks.   She also says "idea development" as she had to think of what order she wanted to fix drinks and such.

I think that's it for this week, I hope you enjoyed the post!    I am linking up with the Hip Homeschool Hop.
