During this school year the boys and I are studying US History and geography. We've been talking about the different places we've visited around the country and the boys are so excited to learn about American History because it involves wars :). We took the opportunity on the 4th of July to invite our friends over for a backyard camp out and US History Kick Off. We had a fantastic breakfast together and had a short and overarching history lesson about how the US was started. We also started learning the national anthem. It was such a great way to kick off our study for the year.
