Just In Case

Just in case you were beginning to think that we are a relatively normal family, I decided to let you know that you couldn't be further from the truth.

Today in school we were learning about Henry Ford, whom I find quite interesting, but the children find rather dull. Anyway, in the book we are reading it mentioned that Henry and the wife built a new house (read mansion) and named it Fair Oaks (or something like that). Well, that caught my kids attention...they had no idea that people NAMED their homes! So, history class was soon forgotten in the frenzy to name OUR house.

As of today, our house has been officially christened "Freddy" by the kids.


  1. Ha! We just had the same discussion today about Mount Vernon! (We're going to Washington Dc in May and I'm trying to get the little ones interested)

  2. Jean, so what did you name your house??


Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
