Yesterday afternoon we were talking about our ancestors and decided to make a visit to the church in Sibbertoft where some of them are buried. The girls were excited to see the headstones I knew about and even managed to find some I did not know about. I think it is so important to know where we come from and both girls like hearing the stories about their relatives.
