Seeing the Declaration of Independence in a new light!

I don't normally put videos into my blog postings, but this one is just too cute not to!

My son was telling me about this video at the supper table tonight. Not only did he bring it up he kept checking back with me to make sure that I had remembered to watch it. That is really out of the norm for him to be that adamant about me watching something that he had recommended.

Anyway, here it is. It's called "Too Late to Apologize - Declaration"

I love it when we can get our young ones to look at history in a different light, or for that fact any light at all!

Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)

My day at Farmington - whew!

As some of you know I volunteer at a local historic home called Farmington. I have posted about it a couple of times here, here and here.

My normal duties are anything with which the program director needs help. Which usually means giving tours, answering questions from visitors, helping with the register and other jobs.

Unfortunately, today it was helping clean up after a tree ripped an 8 foot by 18 foot hole in the roof of the visitor's center.
