Logan got to do blacksmithing at Foxfire. He really enjoyed it.

He started out by flattening a huge nail.

He then curled it to make a rat tail.

Then curved it into a J shape.

He had to cool it off when he was done shaping it.

He made a hook!

Trip to Foxfire

Last week we went to Foxfire with some friends. Foxfire is a pretty interesting place, it is a village showing how people lived 100 years ago in this area. If you are familiar with the Foxfire books, it's the same place and it's only an hour from us!

Because there were only 2 kids in our group, Logan got to do a lot of things. He had a really good time.

He got to play on stilts and was able to take 8 steps before he fell over.

He made rope.

Played with old time toys.
He did some weaving.

And some wood working.

The highlight of the day was the blacksmithing. Logan actually got to shape metal into a hook. But that will be it's own post.

Is it a boy or a goat?

Wow, it's been over 2 months since my last update. Geez. My work schedule should be getting easier now so hopefully I can post more often.

We had our first freeze last night so I thought it would be fun to post some pictures from the summer. I'm really not ready for cold yet.

Sometimes I think Logan takes his job as a goat owner a little too seriously.
