Best History lesson of the Day: Lady Tess: Fashion advisor to the Nobility. This lady was awesome.
The girls and I enjoyed her very informative and entertaining talk that covered everything from the toilette routine and makeup to dressing to what women of nobility wore and why.
Best quiet moments: sitting under a shade tree with Timothy. We read his favorites, Stone Soup and Strega Nona.
Best transportation: The girls rode in style and big brother was happy to act as their cavalier.
Best accessories: Of course what day at the fair would be complete without new flower garlands and a little face paint?
Best History lesson of the year: I love that my Dad's love of history was instilled in me so much that at 40 I am going back to school for a second Master's in History. I love it that I have been able to instill that same thirst for it in my kids. The Renaissance Fair is one of our favorite outings each year. What's yours?
