We are doing a map of the US at the time of each girl, a map of the state the girl is from and marking her town, and trying out some crafts and foods from that time in history. So far, we’ve spent the first three weeks on Felicity. She is my favorite, but I’m hoping to take it slow and offer another class next semester to finish up the series.
Elizabeth and Felicity got along famously with the other girls
We had lots of visitors with us that day…this is Anna and she had been to the American Girl hospital.
Samantha comes from our friend Betsy and she is modeling her new “Felicity” nightgown and lappet cap.
Betsy agreed to “participate” with us by trying out some of the girls’ clothing. Here is a side view of the lappet cap (R10 is working on one for Felicity in a nice lime green) which is made from an antique dresser linen possibly dating back to the turn of the last century.
R10 and I made a raspberry flummery from the Felicity cookbook. Directions on that are on the way!
We have a 10 week co-op semester so we have 7 more weeks. Monday will be our first day with Josefina. I’m planning to make “clay” pots with earth colored Model Magic. Plus, the girls will do their maps.
This is a super way to work with other girls while we do our Portraits of American Girlhood studies at home.
