Being a living history reenactor with a passion for history is not enough. We must teach our little children and the youth to enjoy it now, to appreciate where they are going. You start them at a very early age. Now that we are in a high technology world, we need to show them the past. It will make them well rounded and ready for the future.
I am very fortunate that my young granddaughter has a passion for what I do!
She asked me to tell her what little girls did in the olden days. So I dressed her and took her back in time with me.
the Hearthside House and requested to walk with us in the 4th of July parade.
I was a little worried at first because of the heat and the length. But her passion for what she had learned, she walked one hour an forty five minutes, in the heat and pulling an old fashion wagon fulled with dolls and a Hearthside sign.
Needless to say, how proud of her I am. Here name is Jayniece Jemineze and she is seven years old.
