history lesson

Today was Jo Jo’s first real history lesson. We were off to the Civil War Muster, which draws professional re-enactors from all over the country. Today we went to see the Battle of Gettysburg and to watch the medical scenarios. My baby once again showed herself to be the perfect sidekick for these little adventures. It was hot, but she never fussed. She made friends everywhere she went and was comfortable enough in the new ultra-lite stroller to fall asleep in it! Great news for California.
