Too Cool!!

Lily told me today that she pledgered the flag in school. It took me a minute to realize what she was saying....but when I did, it opened a good discussion. She has been full of good discussions lately!
We talked about what it meant to pledge allegiance to the flag, and what it means to be a good person in our country! Lily learned that to pledge means to promise, and allegiance means we will respect our homes and care for the country and take care of what we have, and the flag represents our country. When ever we pass a United States flag I can hear her yell 'look!! another one of our flags!!' It's really neat to see how much she is learning and growing. Too smart for her own britches she is! Love it! Her little brother isn't too far behind either! Quinn is still working on walking, but he is getting better at walking with one handed assistance. He is also good at saying bye and little things like that. I also discovered that if it makes noise, he will be entertained! While I try not to be too partial, I have to say that I have some pretty terrific kids!
