Learning About Lincoln and Savings!

We don't learn much about President Lincoln in Canadian schools. It's fair enough I suppose, but considering the amount of good that he did, it's probably important for our kids to have a basic understanding of who he was, other than that statue that came to life in Night at the Museum.

So here's documented proof that we teach our kids things. Don't they look like they're paying attention? Doesn't Lori strike a very professional teacher pose? Don't you wish there was audio with this picture? Let me give you a little snippet of what's actually being taught here:

"So President Lincoln freed the slaves and won the Civil War. He was born in February, so on President's Day all the stores have big sales, sometimes up to 75% off! It's too bad he wasn't born in March because then the sales would fall on Spring Break."

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby and Friday Daydreamin at R We There Yet Mom. If you didn't get here from one of those sites, you should really go check them out. There's people there who actually teach their kids proper history that doesn't involve half price sales.
