We also learned about WWI. So sad. Uggg war. Two great books were "The best Christmas present in the World." by Morpurgo (which made me bawl.) and "A Poppy is to Remember." by Patterson. It seemed like most WWI books were Christmas books as well, which was perfect timing. We made poppies to remember:
War is so horrible. We listened to the entire "Children of the Promise" series on our vacation. It's about a LDS family during WWII. So so sad. Not too enthusiastic about teaching about war.
Anyways, it was Christmas as well, and we had fun going to the coast for TWO weddings in the same family!!! (glad I wasn't the mom!) What a beautiful experience to cherish. Two temple weddings at the same time. Two virtuous honourable young couples who have such a bright future before them. Two HOMESCHOOL success stories.
