What a fun week this was. We began a study of birds and are beginning to study each state in the order it became a state. We learn about the state's location, state bird, abbreviation and some other fun facts and whatever we find interesting. For a special field trip we went with my friend Susanne to a welcoming ceremony for troops returning from Iraq. It was a real tear jerker, thinking about these men and women and what they have endured over the past year and their families. When we were leaving Molly said "mom can girls be soldiers too?" " I think I might want to do that someday."
