History, close to home :)

For our history lesson one day we had grandma over with a bunch of things her parents had kept from history and old family pictures. I never grew up knowing much about either side of my family's history as 3 out of 4 of my grandparents were dead before I was born. The remaining grandparent I only met once in my tween years then he died before I turned 20. So it was very neat and interesting to get to see a piece of MY history. A glimpse into my family's past. We all had a neat time, my mom relive some wonderful memories as well as learning some new things herself, and the kids and I seeing a piece of history that had personal meaning :)

This was a math/riddle book of mind teasers that had belong to my grandpa as a boy or young man.

This shows the size of this pocket size book :)
Just more memories.....
This dress we believe belonged to my grandma or her sister, we aren't sure.
Doesn't this picture almost look like it could have been pulled out of history!

That's so neat! I have my great-grandfather's German Lutheran missal and Adam's grandfather's WWII medals. I love all that old stuff.
