America the beautiful – talking with my kids about our country, warts and all.

posted by Homeshuling

I’m not a flag-waving, my-country-love-it-or-leave-it-bumper-sticker-toting, red-white-and-blue wearing kind of American. But I absolutely love my country. Yesterday, on Independence Day, I thought it was important to take a few minutes to tell the girls a little bit about why our […]

There are many wonderful ways to celebrate the Fourth of July as a family – parades, cookouts, beach vacations, camping trips, and of course, fireworks. (Watching them, not setting off your own, if you have any brains at all.)  While […]
