I have been trying to teach the girls about different powerful women in history, with a focus on younger women. Trying to encourage them to be powerful and bold. The first women we learned about are the Trung sisters. They lived in Vietnam around 40AD and helped defeat the invading Chinese army, thereby giving Vietnam it's freedom. They ruled for only three years, but they broke all kinds of barriors in their short lived victory.
We went out to Washington on the Brazos and pretended to be the Trung sisters. Marls kept yelling out about defeating the Chinese and we fought out enemies with stick swords.
