John Quincy Adams was quite the guy. Before he was President, he traveled all over Europe–he had the ultimate homeschool experience. By the time he was 20, Q knew several languages, had translated the New Testament, and had a prolific blog (well, he had a diary). While he might have wished to stay home, his dad - John Adam - encouraged him to take his experience on the road. George Washington appointed him as Minister to the Netherlands at the age of 26. Q served as James Monroe's Secretary of State and wrote the document that we now know as the Monroe Doctrine. All that to say . . .If there was a Foreign Affairs All Star team from the early 1800s, The Q would be batting clean-up. _______________ We recorded an audiobook!
