Colonial Times 

The kids are writing historical fiction stories as part of our Colonial America unit.

Kid: “I named my character John McFly!”

Me: “Hmmm. Do you think John McFly is a good name for a character who lived in Colonial America? Does that make sense for that time period?”

Kid: “Well…not COLONIAL America, but in 1984.”

(Long silence)

Kid: “So…right after.”
