We began with the Wampanoag village.
I was prepared for a very cold day (especially being on the water), but the sun was shining and it wasn't windy, so the temperature was actually quite pleasant. (I was actually overdressed!)
We spent most of our time visiting with the colonists in their village.
Reagan has actually read quite a bit about pilgrim life, so she was very prepared for this field trip. She asked great questions and interacted wonderfully with the colonists. I was so proud of her!
When I chaperoned Collin's field trip to Plymouth, we stopped to see Plymouth Rock first and this cut into the time we had at Plimoth Plantation. This year, the buses only drove by the rock and the Mayflower for the kids to see quickly from inside the bus. The advantage was that we had plenty of time to explore the villages instead of feeling rushed like we did the year I went with Collin's class. The summer after Collin's field trip, I took Collin, Reagan, and Kate to Plymouth (Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth Rock, and the Mayflower) so that we could explore more on our own; I hope to do that again next summer.
Overall, it was a great day. I had car trouble on the way home and one of the boys in my group was a bit of a challenge, but I enjoyed sharing the experience with Reagan and I'm very grateful that she wanted me to be there with her.
