Happy Birthday, George Washington!

Thomas loves all the US Presidents but his favorite is George Washington, or as he calls him, "General George." Born on February 22, 1732, President Washington would have been 280 years old today.

On Monday, which was Presidents' Day, we discovered (via twitter) this video of all 44 Presidents with a one-sentence description of each. I haven't figure out how to embed it but here is a link to its Presidential goodness

My contribution to our celebration of Washington's birthday is to read Washington's Crossing (Pivotal Moments in American History) by David Hackett Fischer. So far it is fascinating (you can learn more by clicking on the picture of the book).

Our final part of the celebration is having cherry pie for dessert!
