Eldest girl was browsing her Tapestry of Grace notebook. “So it says here I’m supposed to keep a time line.” Then she saw the light bulb floating above my head.
The Book of Time from our early Sonlight days. The book I set aside for later. I pulled it from the long-forgotten section of the History shelf.
She was intrigued.
Her enthusiasm drew a crowd. “Aw, you got Joseph. I wanted Joseph!” “George Mueller. You know there is more to the story than the Veggie Tale version, you should read the book.” “Look Mama, Theodore Roosevelt.” “You know what I think is neat? God made sure all the best presidents in history were Christian presidents.” Eldest boy shared the observation his Daddy had shared with him.
So pretty soon we’ll be ordering a set specific to the 20th century. I’ve had fun clicking through all the Timeline Figure sets. And am looking forward to more afternoons with our Book of Time.
