State-by-State Scrapbook :: Illinois


"L is for Lincoln, 
Illinois is his land.
He was president long ago
and known to be fair and grand."
  ~ L is for Lincoln: An Illinois Alphabet

The boys are still working towards completing their State-by-State Scrapbook that they began back in 2009.    Since it is an "extra" project and since they spend so much time on their illustrations for each state, it has taken so much longer than we originally planned.   They don't seem to mind and, despite the increase in their school work in 5th and 6th grade, they still find time to add to their scrapbooks.   It is fun to look back and see how they have grown and how their illustrations continue to improve over the years.  I'm just hoping that they will be able to complete the project by high school! ;)
