Here's a sample of part of our lesson from #1. I taught my kids about my great grandmother, Giacinta Basso. Here is a picture of her with your husband and 8 boys. I never knew my great grandmother Giacinta who immigrated from Italy to Michigan, but I have heard of her sacrifice and great love that she had for her family. There is one child missing, a little baby girl that only lived a few days. I reflect on my own daughter and it breaks my heart to think of not having her sweetness in my home amongst her 3 brothers. Oh, how grandmother's heart must of broke to have buried her only daughter. My daughter decided to draw a picture of her story. (Click here to print out this worksheet from that first lesson.)
Here's her version of the story through her 5 year old eyes.
