FT- Old Florida Museum

St. Augustine Florida
Spanish Colonial time period
Fort Mose 1565-1763
Ponce De Leon came to proclaim the land.   Guardsmen (K had this role, he took it serious) were on duty all the time to protect the colony. Chores such as emptying the potty also belonged to the youngest of the children every.  They had to empty it every morning.
Moving out of the house to learn about chores and games of the Spanish children
There was shells to crush, fences to be built, blankets to be weaved, holes to be made in wood, candles for light.  Don't forget they also needed to grind their own corn flour. Round and round don't pond; was the chant all the kids learned for making flour.

After the chores were done they had free time for a little fun of games.  K loved the game like checkers but you never remove the pieces.

Cant wait to go back there to explore some more
