Some of you may remember how, back in early September, our girls took on a wonderful challenge: memorizing the Declaration of Independence from beginning to end.
Well they did it! I'm pleased to report they worked hard and diligently and memorized the whole durn thing! Don and I are so proud we're busting our buttons.
The deal was they had to have the document memorized by the end of November. They made it, but it hasn't been until this week we've had a chance to videotape them reciting it. They made two full run-throughs and a number of (ahem) bloopers.
Here's the second run-through:
(In case the embedded video doesn't play, here's a direct link.)
I meant to post the first run-through as well, but time got away from us (it takes awhile to download these things).
Their rewards for completing this project are: For Older Daughter, two complete seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. For Younger Daughter, a complete ten-gallon aquarium. We'll be purchasing these items this week.
They've earned them. Boy howdy they've earned them!
