Calico Ghost Town ACWS Civil War Reenactment ~ Barstow CA

The greatest gift is a portion of thyself.

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

We had a lovely time at Calico - and as exhausted as we were, it was very difficult for the weekend to end! The girls and I came home brimming with ideas, and we are discussing, discussing, and so excited about future events. We will flesh them out a bit more before we share! Perhaps some of our ideas can flow into the ACWS as the beloved Miss Athena prepares and leaves for school far away - in honor of her years of service, with the sincere hope that they will be a balm on the bittersweet parting to come.

Thank you all for the delightful time we had in Miss Hepsaba's Boarding House, the finest of accommodations! From the hungry bears scavenging our tea to the stitching of housewives - we had a weekend full of memories. I especially appreciate your kindness and graciousness with our girls. I know once your children have left, it can be difficult to endure others'. Thank you, thank you!

May the Lord bless you and care for you and restore your strength -
