Weekly Wrap Up (Korean War)

Selected reading about Korea

This week we studied the Korean War - Causes and Consequences.
As much as we don't like war, what a different place this world might be if we hadn't helped South Korea!
So Far From the Bamboo Grove is a true account of a girl around the time of the Korean War and the hardships her people faced at the hands of the Japanese.  It was a hard book for my boys to read because of the cruelties, but, it made them understand why freedom often comes at such a high price.

An update on the Victory Garden.....or what is left of it!  A surviving bean plant.

Beans, we ACTUALLY got beans!  My 10 year old got something to actually grow in the soil!

We did finish up a few fun holiday activities - such as making a Keepsake Family Heirloom Tablecloth and a 'friendly' battle between two make it yourself kits:  Gingerbread Train and Chocolate House !
We concluded this week with a fun family trip to the zoo on New Years Eve.  It was so fun to have Hubby there to celebrate a light-hearted day and take that forever desired Kayak trip around the zoo!
