I have to admit, I love this American flag that Anna made at camp yesterday. I like to think that her half-British subconscious caused her to draw it backwards.
I realize that for most Americans this holiday is more about the birth of a nation, than it is about overthrowing Colonial rule. Even so, it is a difficult holiday to be both British and American, so this flag is a keeper.
In the spirit of the holiday though, I'd like to write a list of all the little things that I think make America great. In no particular order. Please feel free to add your suggestions and I'll repost the list with your name and a link.
Reasons to Celebrate America:
- Confident children
- LL Bean flannel sheets
- Ranch dressing
- Drive-in movies
- Drive-thru restaurants
- Have a nice day
- Road trips
- Going out for breakfast
- Customer service
- Free refills and ice
- Why are so many of these food related?
- My LK
- Summer camp; Brunch; Fireflies; Cardinals (the birds, not the catholic priests); Crate & Barrel; reliable beach weather, bagels and challah bread - Nappy Valley Girl
- Marshmallows - Anonymous
Please feel free to add your suggestions and I'll repost the list with your name and a link.
Anyway, I hope you had a very happy day, whether it was Independence Day, or just Wednesday.
