Anna's new favorite hobby is dressing the twins up and making them pose for pictures. I'll hear her giving orders like, " OK, I want you to stand right here. Now kiss. OK, Samuel, I want you to look stern. Put your hands on your hips like this." and so on. It's pretty funny. Today she said Samuel was Henry II, because "he wasn't a bad king". I loved it. How many American eight year olds even know who Henry II was, much less what kind of a ruler he was. I love Our Island Story for this. It really connects children to the story in a way that very few history books do. Living books are the only way to teach history in my opinion!
