Civil war!!!!

We are gearing up for friday. Big civil war reinactment nearby! Soooo we spent hourds on learning all about what started the BIG war! read the bio on harriet beacher stowe. Read the first 2 chapters of uncle toms cabin. The kids put together paper dolls of abrahams lincolns family and civil war soldiers and battlefields. The coolest thing was we found all of that in our library int he garage. very spur of the moment. so cool. The unschooled portion of the day was when it started hailing outside. (very unusual for this part of CA) we spent the better part of a 1/2 hour outside in it. taking pics and enjoying the moment. It was also bread day here. we needed more sandwich bread so we whipped up 3 loaves. they are currently doing their second rise and awaiting baking. This is a learning curve for all of us as I am new to breading as well.(update they came out SOOOOO GOOD! yummy!one loaf is already gone.)
