This was great! Homeschooling & Cracker Country was a great combination.
Alex liked the trains, Jonathan-the blacksmith and Mom-how easy my children & I have it today.
We loved the dress-ups in the Terry Store and learning about life back then in the different buildings.
I will always remember all the helpful crackers: making the experience life like.
