Civil War Days

Lina's school has History theme days according to what grade your in. This year her class participated in Civil War Day. There were cool costumes, history on the weapons used, a battle in the field and a traditional meal served off of metal pie pans. They did the Virginia Reel and practiced walking on stilts. It was a very exciting day and tons of fun for the kids. So the funniest part... They announced the battle in the field. Confederates one side, Union the other side. My baby was on the Confederate side for the war. We said "Hey! Wrong side!" She said her dear friend chose that side so of she wanted to play with her she had to choose it too. So much for understanding her history! :)
