Another Learning Experience


      A great day for a field trip, this Saturday in early May afforded me the opportunity to reinforce our boys' lessons on the Revolutionary War general and  Valley Forge specifically.  We enjoyed our time hiking through Valley Forge National Park, viewing various monuments to our early heroes and helping the boys understand the privation and suffering our soldiers went through there.  Of course, what young boy does not like the chance to see cannons up close and climb on them.  George Washington's headquarters also provided an opportunity for exploration.  We enjoyed our time there, but the boys were plumb tuckered out by the time we returned to Lancaster where we had a motel.
