I’ve heard it from other homeschooling moms. One of the great benefits of homeschooling is being able to further pursue a child’s areas of interest without being boxed in by a textbook curriculum that only scratches the surface of many different topics.
Gabriel has been fascinated with the United States, from national monuments to famous Americans, past and present. In particular, he has a keen interest in U.S. Presidents, and lately, he has been asking me to google pictures of Mount Rushmore. Today, he finally decided to draw his own picture with a slight alteration.
So, in his words, these are the faces of the new Mt. Rushmore, from left to right, “George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, and Barack Obama.” By the way, this is not meant to reflect our political views. 🙂 Gabriel does not have any political biases and does not affiliate himself with any political party. He just likes his presidents. 🙂 Don’t you wish there are more people like that?
