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.

Ever see Thomas Jefferson's skivvies?

 My Grammy found this neat, colonial paper doll book.  
I love it and I hate it.
 I love it for the fun way to re-introduce some key historical figures 
(mostly Thomas Jefferson's family).
 I hate it because it is not perferated.  We have ot cut them out the old fashioned way.  
It is painstakingly slow and we are not finished yet.
 After a slip of the scissors, and an amputation of Dolly Madison's hand, the cutting job fell to me and the fashion director roll went to Livia. 
She just had to remind me that she was better at putting together outfits in real life too.
So I gave her an F for that day's history class.
