Kayaking down the river

Antietam National Park

Took Kent and my other boys to Antietam National Park to learn about the important Civil War Battle at Antietam. He’s taking US History and our family likes going to places like this, so it seemed like the thing to do. The rain held and the Park Ranger who led the tour was great.

Touring Museums

The first trip to museums with Mina today. Gettysburg is our first of many. Living on the East Coast give so much opportunity to learn about our great American history. It’s very interesting to learn what others from other countries know of our history.
