I have watched many World War II movies that I have enjoyed very much. Some gave me a feeling of great sorrow, because so many people died fighting, not to mention the Holocaust. War, even through its sadness excites me, but I can't say why. That's why I took a picture of my Great Uncle Ralph's World War II Veteran flag. It's an old piece of our families' legacy. In reality it's just a flag in a wooden box, but to me it is so much more. I often sit on the couch and gaze at it with the Civil War hat on top thinking about the history. It intrigues me. I hope one day I can own this valuable heirloom.

We have been practicing our writing in homeschooling. I thought it would be fun for the boys to take our camera each week and have them take a picture of anything they wanted, then have them write a short paragraph about the photo. I am trying to teach the boys how to express themselves through their writing this year. Its not about being wordy, but their choice of words. The boys are loving this. We are doing this assignment once a week. Then we are having Dennis judge which picture and paragraph is best, and they win a spot on my blog for the day. So this week's winner was Isaiah.
