I hope you're enjoying a lovely President's Day weekend. Bee brought this log cabin home from preschool last week and proceeded to dazzle us with her knowledge of Abraham Lincoln. Not bad for a four year old...

"This is Abraham Lincoln's house. He wears a big black hat and he's really really tall. He was very poor when he was little, so he lived in a house made of pretzels. Then he died. But he never ever told a lie, so they put his picture on the penny."

I'm so fond of these elementary school memories! I remember building log homes out of thick pretzel rods and peanut butter! At least you can keep this one for a while longer!

My four-year-old made the same picture at her preschool last week! I didn't even think to ask her if she knew anything about it.
