What I found interesting about Isaiah's tree is that 2 of his paternal aunts married 2 of his maternal uncles and one of his paternal uncles married on of Isaiah's maternal aunt. I pointed it out to the students and considered having him colour code those couples, but it seemed to go above their heads.
On Monday, October 28, 2013 when my niece Annette Shirley was born, we were working on our family trees. One of my students was quick to inform me that I need to add her to my family tree. Here's a picture of our newest "leaflet" as well as my tree.
