Field Trip to Traveller’s Rest

Kyle’s class took a field trip to Traveller’s Rest in Nashville last week.  This was the home to Judge John Overton, who was a personal friend of Andrew Jackson.  The kids got to tour the home, visit a one-room schoolhouse and play games that children played long ago (before there were screens to distract them).  I love how both boys have had recent field trips that have taken them back to the same time period!  Read about Hayden’s trip here.

The kids and adults all enjoyed themselves.  I would definitely go back again!

Thanks for stopping by!
