I love history. It’s like an escape from reality except it’s… real.Or it was real. Now it’s.. history. When my girls come home from school and talk about what they’re learning in history (or memorizing…), it’s fun to engage with them and discuss the time eras that they’re learning about. Well, it’s fun for me… not so much for them. But,…
