We are somewhere in the mountains of Colorado right now, but a night at a hotel in Fort Collins allowed me a little time on the Internet….
I’ve been there a couple times, but Henry never had, so we wanted to check it out. It’s not the best place for little kids, though, and we didn’t have the time to really explore it. I found myself having to explain what a battle is, what grave stones are for, our embarrassing history with American Indians… in a way that little boys could understand but not be overwhelmed by. Not the easiest tasks. I especially enjoyed when Finn said, “We’re not going to die, right?” Eesh. Can’t was just talk about how babies are made?
In case you don’t know, this used to be called “Custer’s Last Stand,” before it was renamed. I could go into the history, but I know you can Google the heck out of that if you want to. Let’s just say that Custer and the U.S. Calgary didn’t do so well here.
Wish you could find all the posts from this roadtrip in one place? You can! (Right here)
