Home Spun comic strip #509
I have to say, I like preparing for a new school year even now that I'm unschooling. I tend to grab books and movies that interest me and leave them in view. Marina shares my history interests the most. I have noticed that Sierra is also developing the love of history. She tends to hit the children's series section of the library first, but then she heads to the biography section. She loves the Mike Venezia biographies. Chase likes anything with pirates and has also been learning a lot from his latest computer game, Age of Empires III and the extension packs for it. I don't know much about the game itself (hey, it's not my interest) but I do hear some movie segments that discuss historic events. According to Marina, the game has tasks, such as helping Crazy Horse win the Battle of Little Big Horn. Yep. OK. I just nod and smile.
