We are entering the final days of fall. The leaves are mostly blown away, and we have dug out our winter coats. We fortunately had a mild warm autumn with plenty of days to enjoy the changing colors of the season. I love the slowing of autumn and winter. There are fewer sunny days to feel guilty for wasting, and sometimes our souls just need to take a breather. I'm ready for these slower days with fewer places to go and more time to just enjoy each other.
We have a great big book of natural science that Aedan used as a model for this mushroom.
I have been wanting to go to the National World War I Memorial we have here in our city for years. I decided to wait until we actually studied it. It was absolutely fantastic! There were tanks, every sort of weapon you can imagine, trench replicas, audio experiences, uniforms of all kinds. I won't take the time to describe each picture, but if you have studied WWI at all you will recognize much of it. Words can't really describe all we saw. You really just have to go if you are ever here.
Warning - Lots of pictures to follow!
Here is our day at the WWI Memorial:
I can't believe we waited so long to visit! Incredible!
We also read about the Roaring Twenties and the time of American prosperity after the war. That's Warren Harding and George Washington Carver. See you next week!
