Today we read three different accounts of Lincoln’s life. When we were sitting down to cook, everyone was loud and chatty, to get their attention I started asking questions about Lincoln’s life to partially just focus and partially to see what they had remembered. It was pretty impressive. They knew the date and year he was born. Where he was born. Where his family moved to. How long he went to school. What his jobs were before he was president. Etc. That isn’t something I usually do but it was fun and I think they enjoyed giving me a little ‘what for’ with all their knowledge.
