The DMS Wants to Know!


Monday's Poem replaced the riddle and got us thinking about where our stories come from. Lizzy's review of Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco took us on a journey with a unique young girl, and Thursday on Top of the Heap, we enjoyed telling you a little about our history. Friday, Stephanie and Jess stopped by to share their experience meeting Patricia Polacco at local book nook, Linda's Story Time.

  1. I have traced my family tree! I love looking up genealogy, and I've also done some genetic testing--it's really interesting!

  2. I can trace my Baugh family back to the mid-1500s, and their arrival in this country in the 1600s. It is kind of fun knowing the points in history that directly touched their lives.

  3. My son and I have gone back to Europe and Scandinavia. We didn't find any kings, queens or incredibly wealthy people, but we did find some really wonderful ones we thought we'd like to know more about.
