My daughter has the cutest way of relating to history. She calls it the back thens. We have been reading "Little House On The Praire." Pa has just built Ma a little rocking chair and they have a small formal celebration when he presents it to her.
My neighbor had a garage sale last week and was selling a glider which I bought. I brough it home and my daughter was so excited. She said, "Oh Mom, put it right here and then you can read to us and we will sit around you and it will be just like we are in the back thens!"
We did read and it did feel a little like the back thens, full of delicious memories.
