The family totem pole

I was thrilled when my second grade grandson told me he was excited about studying D-Day.

Even with the promise of visiting battlefields, doing activities at living history site over Labor Day weekend, and showing where they fit on our family tree, I can’t seem to interest the other four grandsons in history.

I’m sad about that.

A personal history can be like an anchor, something the boys will need in our fast-changing world. Even today, or perhaps especially today, kids still need a sense of their heritage to ground them in their corner of the world.
