Custom Collection: Our public library has an online feature that we are really excited about. Librarians will prepare thematically based collections at our request. We do all of this online. We're studying about Indiana, so I requested books, music, movies, maps, brochures on Indiana - and I am able to pick them up at the library closest to us! If you live near me, ask me for more details if you need to. If you don't live near me, see if your local library offers this. It's a fabulous service available to teachers, parents and homeschool families.
As we were reading some of our books - Grandma's House Had No Water and Grandma's House Had No Electricity - we learned the setting was the 1930s.
Well, my Grandma Mary was born in 1912. She was 18 years old and living this type of life in Indiana - so, imagine what it was like when she was born.
So, we scheduled a little field trip, read to her and showed her the pictures and facts we have been learning about.
I required that each girl ask her at least 1 question. They did a fine job.
Grandma Mary just turned 99 on September 3. The girls have already started planning her 100th birthday!
We are truly blessed that she's still alive, and we're able to experience these moments with her!
We love you, Grandma Mary!
