Liberty Day!

This past weekend we went to a festival called Liberty Day . It was about Jamestown, Virginia and how it started, who was in it, etc. It was a two day event but we only went to the main (and best) part of it, because it would if been a long time to sit for the younger kids. There were a couple hundred people there! It's a annual event hosted by the Erber family.

Stephen and Ravi as colonists!

Doug Phillips was one of the speakers along with William(Bill) Potter.

Some of the Erber sons sang some patriotic songs. There was a play with singing that they did, too. It was about the Boston Tea Party. It was very funny!(Look closely at the picture and you'll see two of the Erber sons wearing fake dresses, acting the play out!)

Everyone applauding.

My dad was able to meet Doug Phillips---

And so was my mom!

There was also line dancing such as the Virginia Reel, Polka Pattie Cake, and the Spanish Waltz.

Some of the little girls dancing on their own afterward.

Me and Sara Devine

I had a great time there!

For information about it go to my moms blog at her post called 'Raising Maidens of Virtue' Encounter.

Hope to see you there next year!

Me and Kechia

Here I (Naomi) am with Kechia Glick. She is a very nice and godly girl. She is one of five children, three boys and two girls. One of her older brother's was just married. Keshia (20) has one younger sister named Jennie (16). Both girls love to help families with children. Also, both girls are musically gifted. Kechia plays piano and a little bit of guitar while Jennie her younger sister plays cello and violin. I am learning to play the recorder. I am practicing the hymn 'Seek Ye First'.

Me and Liberty!

On Liberty Day, I (Naomi) met Liberty Phillips and she has a doll named after her, the Liberty Doll, which I was holding. My favorite part was the dancing. I had a lot of fun, I can't wait until next year!
