Happy Birthday Abe Lincoln

 To celebrate Abe Lincoln's birthday (and President's day long weekend), the children and I read several books about him.  My favorite one is by Kay Winters.  The book is written in a way that is understandable to children and the illustrations are just lovely.  We talked for a long time about what life must have been like back then, it's hard even for me to grasp!  

After we finished reading we made a log cabin out of pretzels and crackers.  We used soy nut butter to "glue" everything on, it was a messy, but yummy, project!  This evening Bryce asked where the cabins were because he had not seen them.  My answer?  "They ate them."
