Farewell & Thank You

My Summer's Over

Old Salem was my last trip to blog about.

I am starting back to school this week so no more trips.

I wanted to say thank you for reading my blog this summer. It has been really fun traveling and spending time with my mom while learning about North Carolina's History.

I think my favorite trip of all was my Roanoke trip. Being on the road with mom by ourselves was really fun. I loved the play and hope to go back and see it again. I loved the Sea Turtle Hospital too :).

If you haven't been to some of the places that I have visited this summer, please go. North Carolina is full of history and it is wonderful to have these places to be able to visit.


This has been a wonderful summer with my girls and I want to thank all of you also who have been following Jessica's blog. These are memories I will remember always.

We did not make it to everything we had planned, but there's always the weekends and next summer :).

If you haven't already, please visit our picture gallery. We have taken tons of pictures to share with you.

Thank you again for following our Summer Travel Blog.

Jessica and I hope you have many wonderful and safe travels in your future!

Hi Jessica! I enjoyed your blog! I'm afraid I hadn't checked in a few days but today I read all about it. I'm so glad you and your Mom enjoyed Old Salem. I went with my parents when I was little to see all that. I liked it too. I've been back to eat a colonial meal or two, but I need to do the vacation thing there again. It is SO close.

Please take a look at www.ovta.org or www.ovta-org.blogspot.com to discover what the Overmountain men are doing during September and October to recognise the importance of NC militia in the Revolutionary War in 1780. We re-enact their march from Virginia to SC every year. The eastern part of the trail starts in Elkin NC and joins the mountainmen in Morganton. This is a NPS National Historic Trail. It will be featured in Ken Burn's series Our National Parks: America's Best Idea which begins in September. If you want to come to our Elkin Celebration for the Elkin City Schools, I will work you in on Oct. 9th. We are limiting it to the tiny town schools this year but will expand it to three counties and homeschoolers next year. However, since you did such great work, I would be happy to get you and your mom in for the day long event. I'm helping with it as a member of OVTA. It will be a bit like Old Salem. Let me know if you guys are interested or if I can help you with any projects in the future. - Donna Absher
