Home Spun comic strip #322
My Source of All Knowledge is still in Italy, having a grand time, so I was forced to look online to find out which president it was that was ambidextrous. How many times has Marina told me this and I didn't remember? I'm a poor student. I scoured our encyclopedias and the internet before I found that fact. I believe she learned that from "Don't Know Much About US Presidents by Kenneth Davis. I really should pay more attention when Marina tells me these things.
Then I went looking for a fun fact about George Washington. I never knew how much he liked ice cream. Truth be told, I thought ice cream hadn't been invented yet. I could not have been more wrong! Ice cream has been around a long time. You learn a new thing every day when you homeschool your kids.
