So who was paying attention in history yesterday?

ME: OK Violet, why were the British going to Lexington and Concord?

VIOLET: Umm.... to fight?

I sigh and shake my head when suddenly Benny decides to chime in....

BENNY: For the guns and the gunpowder.

ME: That's right. Good listening.

I hand the book to Violet, tell her to read it to herself, and then we'll try again.


BENNY: Do you know why they started fighting?

ME: Why?

BENNY: Because those men started to burn part of their town.

Of course, Benny also had the advantage of sitting on my lap where he could see all of the pictures as well.
