Last month we went to a presentation one evening at the kids’ school called “A History of the World in 20 Objects”. The presentation was given by author Christopher Lloyd, who wrote the book “What on Earth Happened”, and it was nothing short of amazing. The kids loved it, Matt and I loved it, and it’s actually resulted in multiple family discussions on historical events that have been both fun and interesting.
As devout history nerds, Matt and I both wanted to see the presentation as soon as we read the email sent out by the school. The kids were so annoyed when we announced that we’d reserved tickets: “Why do you make us do stuff like this?!?” was the general, moaning consensus among the children. Undeterred, Matt and I both looked forward to it.
We didn’t realize, however, that Gabe would be seeing the presentation that morning during school. It turned out to be great that he did, though! A budding history geek himself, Gabe SO loved the school day presentation that he could. not. wait. to go see it a second time, and he convinced his siblings that it was going to be so fun and so cool.
