Let Me Introduce You

Introducing the William Boeing you never knew!


Doesn’t he look cute in his felt mustache and Dollar Tree reading glasses (sans lenses)?!?!

The 5th graders at our school held their yearly biography fair the other night.  Each student is assigned a person of historical significance and then they learn as much about their person as they can.  They come to the fair dressed like that person and display a poster with facts they have learned, as well as a picture of who they are.  The parents and others who come to the fair get to try to guess each person, and can only ask three yes/no questions.  I missed this event when Emily participated, so it was fun to see how it all worked.  I sure need to brush up on my important-people history!!

Here’s what William Boeing really looked like:

As you can probably surmise from his name, he was an important man in the airline industry.  If you want to know more, just ask this guy…he’s the expert!
