This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Early American Fun Fact

We learned that the early Americans rarely (if at all) used glass in their windows.  
(I'm sure many other places did this too, but we are studying early Americans at the moment.)

They used oiled paper.
 We oiled our own paper to see why.
Oiled paper is stronger than dry, it is more see-through, and it repels water. 
When glass was not readily available, oiled paper was the stuff.

I LOVE that I learn along with the kids!
