William and Charlie helped me to sew their doublets, and I must say that they turned out alright for a mother who doesn't sew!
We learned about archery, although the kids were not allowed to try it, which was disappointing. Wouldn't you love to get your hands on all of those people who have gotten rich out of ridiculous law suits that are the reason everyone now is so worried about liability??
William tried his hand at checkers (and realized that he needs to practice a little more...) but he was beaten by a good friend, so he didn't seem to mind.
We met some blacksmiths and learned about metal craft, and also about leather. Did you know that by the time knights were all suited up, they were often wearing more than 150 pounds of leather armour, chain mail, and armor?
