The Holiday Hat: America’s Birthday

Happy Independence Day! We’re spending it with family, pool time, barbeques and lots of red, white and blue! Meanwhile, Ryan’s at work. Boo for him. It’s Quarter end. Or month end, or something like that.

I took some photos of the kids this morning and boy was it a big deal! I have to wonder, who are those moms who can get their toddlers to sit, smile and be patient while you take photos? And what do those moms bribe their kids with? No. Seriously. Tell me how!

The Parenting Hat: Kelsey’s Pledge

Kelsey has a holiday message for you all: Here she is saying the Pledge of Allegiance in honor of our Independence Day. You may need to turn up your volume (I couldn’t get too close for fear of getting wacked in the head by her flag).

The Inspirational Hat: Motivational Monday

America is the land of the free because of the brave. God bless America. And God bless our troops. Yesterday brought wonderful news to our country. It reminds me to be thankful for freedom. For liberty. And for justice for all.
