Shane and I had so much fun in History today. We studied about the first settlers of the New Netherland Colony (now New York), and how they had to trade with the natives. I set up my own Trading Post for fun. Shane decided to trade his pencils for "trick or treat" candies! But the neat thing was when directly after the lesson, I hopped on the internet to check out my family member's daily blogs. Low and behold, my niece Jackie had posted a story just this morning about the time some indians came to her home in the jungle where she grew up as a kid. Five toothless men wanted to trade with her father. They offered her father a pig as a trade --- for Jackie!!! you must go read this story on her blog. It will give you a good laugh. I will also include the blog sites of her parent's. They make for good, fun reading!
