|Selected reading about Korea|
As much as we don't like war, what a different place this world might be if we hadn't helped South Korea!
So Far From the Bamboo Grove is a true account of a girl around the time of the Korean War and the hardships her people faced at the hands of the Japanese. It was a hard book for my boys to read because of the cruelties, but, it made them understand why freedom often comes at such a high price.
|My boys started the next element in their Modern American History lapbook|
|An update on the Victory Garden.....or what is left of it! A surviving bean plant.|
|Beans, we ACTUALLY got beans! My 10 year old got something to actually grow in the soil!|
We concluded this week with a fun family trip to the zoo on New Years Eve. It was so fun to have Hubby there to celebrate a light-hearted day and take that forever desired Kayak trip around the zoo!
|"Daddy, save me from the Llamas!"|
|There's a whole lotta 'llama love' going on!|
|Feeding the Lorakeets. This one was particularly loud and bossy --- I don't think my 10 year old was thrilled with this visitor!|
|Feeding a friendly Lorakeet|
|Ahhhh! The Kayak trip of a 'lifetime'!|
Join us next time for the 1950's and Eisenhower.
