Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Independence Day!  Do your children know why we celebrate the Fourth of July?  It's not just a day to have a BBQ and watch fireworks.  It represents the day we became a free and independent country, no longer under the rule of another.  Because of the sacrifices made by men and women, we can enjoy freedoms unlike any other country in the world. 

I hope you sit down sometime and talk with your children about this unique holiday.  There are some amazing stories about bravery and courage that your children might not know the bulletproof George Washington.  Don't know it?  Your homework assignment is to Google it and find out  :)  Also, can your kids sing the patriotic songs America the Beautiful, The Star Spangled Banner, America (My Country Tis of Thee)?  Can they recite the Pledge of Allegiance?  These are all part of being an American.  It's our responsibility as Mom's to see that our children truly understand the reason we celebrate the Fourth of July.  Now have fun watching fireworks!
