Field Trip to Dover Cemetery

Today we went up to Dover Cemetery as a spur-of-the-moment trip with some friends. It’s a really interesting place, but sad because it’s so run down.

Everything is grown over with little pine trees.

Some of the gravestones were unreadable, and others were just rocks stuck in the ground to mark a grave.

We paid attention to the dates of birth and death. Some of the children buried there died at only a few months old. Another girl was fourteen.

These rocks were piled over what we assumed was another grave. Fascinating…

Besides the fact that I love history and looking at all the graves was very interesting, we had a great time hanging out with friends and enjoying the beautiful day. Who says homeschoolers aren’t socialized?
