Georgia: I heard that years 3 & 4 went to Wolston house.
Lily: Yes we did.
Georgia: So where is it?
Lily: Wolston house is just outside Brisbane.
Georgia: Why did you go there?
Lily: We wanted to learn about how people lived about 150 years ago.
Georgia: What did you see there?
Lily: We saw an old house that Mr. Simpson built in 1853. We also saw a model of the house when the Goggs family lived there.
Georgia: What were some of the things that you did there?
Lily: We pumped water from a water pump, washed clothes on a washboard, played some olden day games and dressed up in olden day clothes.
Georgia: Do you think life was better back then?
Lily: I think it was better back then because it would be fun! But the worst thing would be wearing the corset!
