Leeks, Apples, and Junior Docents

This past Saturday, April 17 (which was a great day for cooking), London Town's junior docents came out in force to cook and clean at the Lord Mayor's Tenement.  We had a lot of fun, the food was good, and the visitors that came had a great time.  Though I could write a bit more about the day, I'm going to let our guest blogger for this post, Perry (a Junior Docent), give her thoughts. (BTW - The next gathering is Saturday, May 15.  So come out and see what our Junior Docents can teach you about London Town!)

My name is Perry Gregory and I am a 11 year old  junior docent at London Town. On the day that these pictures were taken, (April 17) , we had a great time, giving tours ant the tenement, cooking apple coffin ( the colonial residents word for pie that had a top on it) and [leek] stew, and playing games . In the picture [below], My friend Emma and I are playing 12 mans bluff, which is a game sort of like a cross between tic tack toe, and checkers. The object of the game is to make three in a row of your own stones while simultaneously trying to block your opponent from doing so. We also aired out the beds, and swept the floor of the kitchen and the attic. It was very dusty. History has always been my favorite subject, and so coming to London Town is always a pleasure . Please come to our next event. It will be really fun and I would love to give you a tour! Thanks,  ~Perry Gregory
