Uncle Tom's Cabin

Recently we went to Uncle Tom's Cabin as they were having an open house. This was our second time going. The first time I only had 5 kids and this time 10 but the oldest two were missing this time. I first read this book when I was a teen in high school and went on to name my first daughter after one of the characters in the book. My dd3 has been studying about the Underground Railroad so this was a good field trip for her. We are also watching Roots now which I borrowed from the library. The older kids have already seen it but its all new for the young'uns.


  1. Assalamu Alaikum,

    it's too bad I didn't make it this time around, the weather looks like it was really nice mashaAllah, I hope one day to bring A there :)

  2. Wa Alaikum Salaam

    Yes it was a nice day. Last year when they had an open house the weather was terrible so we didn't go. Apparently there were way more people that came last year though. Go figure. That would be nice if A could go there.
