As I was scurrying about the house,
cleaning here and there,
I noticed Will playing at the dining room table.
When I asked what he was playing,
he informed me that the castle was The Alamo
and how it was under attack.
Will loves history and can frequently be found
reading one of his favorite history books
for the umpteenth time.
Today it was The Alamo
and he was excited to play out this story
after giving me a little preface as to what was going on.
I just love hearing them tell me stories
and I was delighted to hear of his creative play...
The Alamo... the men at their stations...
Colonel James Bowie (the taller one in the pic)...
(l)William Travis (a.k.a. Buck) and (r)Austin
under the Colonel's command
(also, an unnamed captain in the center)...
General Santa Anna (president of Mexico)
and his army ready to attack...
Holding the fort... ready to defend...
The inevitable... Santa Anna enters the Alamo...
The rest is... well... history.
