Jake immediately found one that interested him and was excited to see that his name was inside it. . .
Books, Glorious, Books! (I am singing it to the tune of Food, Glorious, Food-if you didn't get that automatically).
Another Coolidge book that I can't wait to dig in to. Doesn't he just look like a man that can be trusted? A gentleman? A true leader. I have to come clean and admit I am not as familiar with his presidency as I should be. That will be changing soon!
Jake is excited to read this book by William J. Bennett. I love that he is excited about it! I love that he was as excited as me when we opened the boxes and found books!
I love the pictures in this book!!!
I felt so smart when I knew what Mr. Bennett was talking about when I saw Peloponnesian War. We learned about it last year in our Timeline. If I learned about it before I have no memory of it what so ever. Seriously. None.
I am working on my HMD. Homeschooling Mom Degree. It is pretty much a major in every subject and it takes YEARS to get it.
Back to Dr. Carson because he is a-maz-ing! You have got to read his book(s). "For freedom is an elusive bird, constantly on the move, progressively distancing itself from complacency." Genius.
There is actually an entire curriculum built around it (that I will be researching), because it is just that AWESOME! I love the dedication. . .
I looked up "give" and the definition was 3/4's of a page long! I think "give" is a good place to start. We are going to see what the word "give" meant in 1828, and see how we have changed it over the past 185 years.
THANK YOU, Thank You, thank you, Aunt Gloria! Not just for these boxes of books, but for giving me memories in the form of books my whole life. I just finished rereading The Secret Garden a few weeks ago-the copy that you gave me when I was a girl. A beautiful hard back copy that I will pass on to a grand daughter I am sure!
