Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Dwight David Eisenhower report

I really loved reading all your reports about your family's history in Kansas. One family has a relative who came to Kansas from France, another has a relative who came to Kansas from Russia, several are related to Kansas pioneers and farmers, and some of you have families that recently came to Kansas. It is amazing to see the connections to Kansas history within our own class.

This week you are learning about Dwight David Eisenhower. In class I said that Eisenhower was the most significant Kansan in world history. Have you discovered why?

Eisenhower was a key general in World War II, leading important battles in North Africa and then commanding the D-Day invasion. After a distinguished military service, he was elected President of the United States. Enormously popular, people wore buttons declaring"I like Ike."

Look to the right for more Eisenhower links.
