Wax Museum.

Have you ever been to a wax museum? No? Neither had I. Until today. I visited a superb showing of our nation's most influential people. Uncle Sam. Abraham Lincoln. Sacajawea. Thomas Jefferson. Martin Luther King Jr. Rosa Parks. Orville and Wilbur Wright. Dolly Madison. So many more. But the best figure I saw today was that of Sam Houston. Houston was a prominent figure in Congress and the Senate in the mid 1800's. He became the Governor of Texas and was always a great friend to the Cherokee Indians in Tennessee. But my favorite tidbit about Sam Houston is that he bore a striking resemblance to my very own Isaac!

He's not grumpy. They had to sit or stand very still. They were wax figures after all.

Sam and Ruthie have already begun planning who they will be in the 5th grade wax museum.
