My memories were stirred when I recently signed Sierra up for a special homeschooling day at Sunnyside, Washington Irving's home. My older two did events at a local Washington's headquarters site that has since closed. They did several activities that day, including satchets and snickerdoodles. Any event that involves cookies has to be good.
Sierra and I had a good time at Sunnyside, learning about how the Irving family celebrated the holidays and touring the family cottage. It is such a beautiful place, like something out of a fairy tale. I would love to visit it again, maybe in warmer weather when the gardens are in bloom. We didn't get to make snickerdoodles this time, but there were cookies and cider after three hours of activities including the tour.
