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.
