A Classic Tale…

A Classic Tale…

The purpose of this blog is to journal the adventures of Aaron, Jenny, Alexander, Jackson, Maxwell and Isabella.  We are thankful for the adventures that our parents and grandparents have taken, because those adventures have made us into the people that we are today.  We believe that we owe future generations an adventure that will be worth telling and re-telling.

What makes a story a “classic”?  The book Swiss Family Robinson is a classic because the family had an adventure. They were shipwrecked and had to use their wits and resourcefulness to survive. Subsequently, they found themselves drawn closer together as a family. If the story was simply about a family that took a boat ride and nothing particularly exciting happened, it would not be a classic book that captivates the hearts and minds of each generation.
