“Snow-bound” at the John Greenleaf Whittier Homestead, Haverhill MA

We went to the “Snow-bound” event at the Whittier Homestead on Sunday.  Enjoyed a horse-drawn carriage ride (courtesy of Kimball Farm), met the sheep and cows, and were offered a beautiful 1952 Farmall tractor for a pittance.

The main event was hearing a retelling of the narrative poem “Snow-bound” while sitting in front of the fireplace that is described in it.  A very neat experience, thoroughly enjoyed by Leo and Finn.

An old Quaker tells us, “Wipe thy boots!”

The actors played their parts while the poem was read.
