The girls told us next time they visit, they want the second floor where grant and Lincoln stayed. We took their mother and uncle to that room, and the girls are thrilled about the history. I was exhausted after the trip, but the girls wanted to visit Ronald Reagan's boyhood home and the wife stopped and they took the tour on their trip back to home. Two President's homes in one holiday weekend.

We take them to Springfield the next holiday weekend. They are getting into lincoln like their grandfather did as a young boy. I read the gettysburg address in fifth grade on lincoln's birthday, and the meaning of those sacred words were seared into my child like mind. It is so rewarding to see kids learning.
