The kids and I were able to participate in a field trip about an hour away in Tennessee with our home school group. It was a really neat field trip and a great way to get back into a routine after all the craziness of the storms that passed through April 27th. We enjoyed learning about the old machines and the history behind this very old mill that is still completely water-powered. We heard explanations and saw demonstrations of the mill grinding oats and grits, how thread is spun, how material is woven, and how the mill can operate so many machines. It was a beautiful day and we learned a lot!
