Plimoth, Plymouth, Plymoth????

No matter how you spell it, Plymouth MA , is a great place. I went on a field trip today with Bella's class. A very appropriate place for this time of year.  What a blast. We meet Native Americans and Pilgrims too. The kids had a hoot trying to catch a chicken. and I got up close to a rooster. I stopped to fix my sneaker and don't ask why but Mr. Rooster came walking up to me. 

The weather was picture perfect. We had a picnic lunch, what more can you ask for.


As for the spelling? Choose which ever one you like. Another thing I learned today was that back in the 17th century, there were no spelling rules and people just spelled things phonetically . That explains the many different  spellings of the word Plymoth!

Awesome! We've been to Jamestown, Willimasburg, Raleigh, but have never made it far north enough to get to MA. It is now on my to do list!

I love that place. I've never been able to see it in person, but I share it through books with my kids at school. Looks like fun!
