Why didn’t I Pay Attention????

Think back.
Think back to high school.
Think back to junior high school.
Think back to elementary school.

For me..  that’s a WAY BACK in time!

Not THAT far !
Now.
Think back to when you were first taught
US HISTORY.

I mean REALLY taught US HISTORY!

I was bored too. 
YAWN.

BUT…

I should have paid attention!
I should have listened!
I should have been..INSPIRED!

But, I wasn’t.


This fall break,
 hubby & I went to Virginia.
(USNAVY son & granddaughter live there).

THERE IS SO MUCH US HISTORY THERE!

Yes. I will admit it.
I had to…UM…GOOGLE..some of it!

REVIEW MY PRIOR LEARNING!
REVISIT dates, places,& names that
SOMEONE had taught me A LONG TIME AGO!
I passed the tests..but I don’t remember a thing!

This time…It was fascinating!
It was so exciting, humbling, so enthralling!

I was excited to learn!  AGAIN!

And so..
Here are a few of the places we went, 
the things we saw, 
and the people I want to know MORE about.

I am searching for new books to read, now.

Seeing and becoming a PART of history…
has made me want to learn more!

Wow! Maybe that’s how our kids feel.  🙂

I think next time…
I will listen, engage, be a part of new learning.
Then I won’t have to REPEAT IT!  HAHA


So.. As I “relive” my vacation through the pictures…
I think I will spend a little “research” time
 on the parts I
 “missed”
 the first time!

Have a Great Week!

PAY  ATTENTION!
YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS A THING! 🙂
