U.S. 12th President, Zachary Taylor



Ben's first research paper (to be completed at home) was due last week. Grandma and Papa did a great job getting Ben to work on the paper while Dave and I were in California and Ben did a good job finishing it up on Sunday. I would love to have seen him do his oral presentation but I was NOT invited, you might even say I was uninvited. Oh, well. At least he let me get a picture.

Wow! What a great costume! You must have put a lot of work into it.

I actually rented it from a local place that charges only $10 for four-day rentals. It's a great deal, plus the lady looked up President Taylor online before we got there so she could make sure she had something from the correct time period. I consider her to be one of my miracles because Ben also had to tell about clothes from that time in his report and she served as a "personal interview" in the bibliography because she knew so much and shared it with Ben. It was research and convenience all packaged into one stop for ten bucks! Miracle indeed.

Wow. I was going to say, that outfit looked impossible to put together. Please save that lady's contact info. She sounds like a good resource to have through the elementary school years!

Good job Ben!
