This year, both my kids studied American history. We were all transported to the early 1400-1500's
and learned about the rich history of St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States, 
45 minutes south of where we live here in Florida.
We learned about the colonies and the power struggles, the hardships of the
colonists, the beginnings of slavery. We looked at maps and drew lines across oceans to show the different
voyages foreigners have taken to discover the "new" world.
This treasury by Etsy's Please Be Still is so appropriate and front of mind for me and mt family these days.
I discovered too this amazing Etsy print store with original artwork by Jen Renniger, a fellow Floridian.
Here are a few of my favorites but do yourself a favor and take a visit to her shop to find your own

Nina! Thank you so much for the lovely post! And for the interesting coincidence: St.Augustine is my favorite city. I was married there :)
