Labor Day in Old Wethersfield

Posted by mrssmythe on September 5, 2017 in Books, Garden, Out & About, Travel |

The girls are studying American history this year, and one of the books Ginger will be reading is The Witch of Blackbird Pond. Have you ever read that book? I’ve read it three times.

Shark Week…at the Movies

The girls are really interested in sharks right now, so when I saw “Shark Week at the Movies” advertised on the Fathom Events website, I marked it on the calendar.
