A couple of weeks ago, I looked out the window and saw my youngest skiing down a "hill" on one of our "sleds." I couldn't pass up the picture! The land around here is pretty flat, so the kids make use of any incline they can, especially the slope going up to the fence row behind the barn.
They also use anything as a sled since we don't get enough snow to warrant buying real sleds. The favorite is an old aluminum baking tray that they curled the front edge so it glides better. This one works great on ice, and surprisingly well on this fall's brown grass.
Fall means the Indians are coming!
Every October is the Ft. Masaac Encampment, a French and Indian War reenactment.
The Encampment is something our family has been attending for almost ten years and is easily one of our favorite events here in southern Illinois.
We love to sit in the music tent and listen to The Peacocks.
History in action.
So tell me, what's your favorite fall event?
