While studying at BYU somebody asked me what non-major class I enjoyed the most while earning my degree. My answer was surprising even to myself: American Heritage. Being a proud and very patriotic Brit, I wouldn’t have suspected that I’d love American history so much, but the more I learned about the founding fathers (in particular, George Washington), and the miracle of how this country began, the more fascinated and engaged I became.
Over the past couple of years Brock and I have been able to visit a couple of historical sites on the East Coast. Here I am at Independence Hall soaking up the history and loving it!
If you guys haven’t seen the HBO series John Adams yet, I highly recommend it. It’s very well done, and takes you on a fantastic journey of another great president.
I hope you guys had a great Presidents Day, and hopefully time off to enjoy it!
