This past week we had a fun time learning about Delaware. We got some books from the Library and also did some research online. Ken suggested that we do a presentation on it for him. We also have been reading about table manners in our manners book (and then Ken and I went to a banquet earlier in the week so the kid's thought it would be fun too) so we decided to have a banquet combined with a presentation about Delaware. We had fun setting the table with more silverware than we normally use and our good plates for everyone except Megan. All of the kids got really into it. We had an appetizer,salad, soup (chicken soup as they raise lots of chickens in Delaware.), and biscuits, chicken and potatoes and peach cheesecake for desserts.
The kids took turns serving the different courses. They also dressed up a little bit for the event (notice Aaron's tie hanging off the back). While eating (which took a long time with all our courses and waiting for everyone to finish) we each took turns telling something that we had learned about Delaware.
This week we are learning about Pennsylvania. If any of you are from there I would love to hear about what you like to eat or do and what is special about your state!
