Today, a group of us homeschoolers from Antioch went on a field trip to Sam Houston's Historic Schoolhouse. We were taken on a tour through the museum and listened to a history lecture on Sam Houston's life. Then we sat in Sam Houston's schoolhouse, which he founded in the year 1812 and was the teacher at the age 17. I could go on and on about all the history facts that I found fascinating today...but, that would probably bore many of you...so, I won't. :) The kids did learn how to grind and sift corn into flour and how the pioneers made their wooden roof shingles and wax candles. At the end of the slide show, you will see Allyson and a group of girls pretending they are teaching in Sam Houston's schoolhouse.
