closeup of ruffled American flagWhile having dinner, my husband and I quizzed our older two sons on facts about the U.S. government. I asked, “Who is the Speaker of the House?” Without hesitation, our youngest son, David, shouted, “Mom!”

Colosseum in RomeMy son and I were reading a library book about famous buildings. Turning to a picture of the Colosseum, I told him I’d visited it several years ago. He looked at the crumbling stadium and asked, “Did it have its roof on then?”
