As I recently finished hot gluing my son’s Alamo project together, I was struck by the power of history and the importance of learning new things….even at the ripe old age of 43! Raising my two children in Texas means they are steeped in the history of this great state. Me, not so much. But I couldn’t resist reading my son’s school books and familiarizing myself with the history of that great battle as he completed his fourth-grade project. It was fascinating!
