I appreciate all my readers too much to let the last post be all you get to read when you come to visit my blog, but I'm also short on time tonight. So I thought I'd give you a little glimpse into a recent conversation we had in the car yesterday. We were listening to some early American music, since that's what we're studying in history these days, and I decided to give them a pop quiz.
Mom: Let's see how many of the thirteen colonies we can name.
Ryne: New York, Massachusetts, Virginia...
[Ryne continues to name several of the colonies, eventually naming nine of them, and Grace adds at least one.]
Grace: South Sandwich Islands!
Ryne: No! That's near Antarctica!
Grace: I know, but I just like the name.
