Not THAT far !
I was bored too.
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!
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
Looks like you had a wonderful vacation, Wendy! By the way, I also feel just like you described whenever we go to a science museum with our grandkids. Electrical circuits?? Umm…maybe I was absent that week. 😉
