It's funny how when you're pregnant suddenly everyone you see is pregnant, or when you get a new car suddenly everyone has the same type of car. Maybe the occurrences aren't any greater, but the awareness is heightened. The same has happened for me with our Civil War study.
I went to our local garden store in search of lima beans for a science experiment and what did I find in the tomato seed section? Tomato seeds called, "Abraham Lincoln!" How cool is that? So tomorrow on the school agenda we'll plant our Abraham Lincolns" and see what happens.
