Those Who Don't Know History Are Doomed to Repeat It

...Eaglet just chooses to repeat it in order to learn it! Experiential learner he is (and quite artistic too.) This year he has learned about:

The Statue of Liberty (using various media)

The Old Testament Israelites

The Titanic

The White House

Laura Ingalls Wilder

Native Americans


And here's my personal favorite:

Guess who?! Tragedy this photo was taken before he made a wig out of white felt and cotton balls. The coolest thing about all this, is that not one of these subjects or activities was my idea. This is just what happens in the life of a home-schooled, six-year-old boy. Love it.

So THAT's why you're not blogging so much. ;) I've been wondering how things are going as you adjust to life with a new baby. Glad things are going well for you!

The Titanic picture made me laugh a little. Is he holding the chair because he's about ready to smash the ship with it? I don't think that's quite how it happened, but it would be the boy thing to do, huh?
