The school bells might be ringing here in Ashland this week, but we had a jump start in an old one room schoolhouse this past weekend. A lovely lady I used to work with turned 70 and her children had a surprise party for her. Her Son-in-law's family bought this old one room school and fixed it up and use it for family get togethers all year. I think they have just started renting it out to non family also. It's been restored, but updated nicely. We had fun celebrating with Deb and her family and friends.
Happy Birthday Deb! We had a good time catching up with her and her family and enjoying a nice meal too! I was having fun taking pics of the schoolhouse..come along for the tour!
Inside the building they have kept many of the schoolhouse features..like the blackboard, desk chairs that were found in the basement..and that step off the front could cause some problems during functions, but a great place for a stage and the teacher's desk.
Look up..I think that would have been where the bell was located, on the top of the building.
I think the stone work around the foundation is just beautiful.
How many little ones came out here to get a drink?
I could just imagine little kiddos out here for recess.
Hmmm...could this building possibly be the former outhouse? Thankfully, there is indoor plumbing in there now.
Now for something completely different!
I made homemade spaghetti sauce over the weekend using tomatoes from our garden..it was very tastie! I invited Phil and Addy and Alexis over for dinner to test it out..although Jack had declared it very good already!
Addy likes her pudding with "cream"..
Lexi enjoyed her spaghetti dinner and chocolate pudding for dessert..
Those jello commercials have it all wrong..This is pudding face!
