Hurray for Independence Day

The love of freedom by the free,

 when nurtured from its infancy,

becomes a many-splendored thing

that makes the heart rise up and sing.

 The stars and stripes are symbols of

 our country's greatness, and the love

of citizens who pay the cost

so our traditions won't be lost.

May our children forever see

the sweet rewards of liberty.

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

Isn't my grandson a cute little American?

Happy Fourth of July to you and your family, Sue!

I haven't been around to see you lately because Gil has been sick with food poisoning since last wednesday. He is feeling better now and the kids have been awesome but as you can imagine, my wing man was down and I was also taking care of him! He's feeling better today!


Hope you guys have a great 4th! :)

We are so blessed to live in a land of freedom. And we are ever grateful for the men and women who work hard and those who have given their lives so we can be free. God bless America and your cute grandson too!

These pictures of Bryce are adorable. I would be so much happier if I could only know that our schools are teaching patriotism as the children go from grade to grade. We used to celebrate all the holidays when I went to school. Furthermore we gave particular attention to the ones that were all about our country and the freedoms we enjoy. Nowdays all of that is pretty much gone from our schools unless you put them in private schools. Public ones are forgtting such things, if celebrated at all, it is very scanty. I hope it is only in our local school system. How is your public school system when it comes to celebrating God and country?

Perfect poem for the 4th! And yes, he is a cutie. We are so lucky to live in this country, and nothing brings that home more than seeing the delight children take in patriotism.
