It's a Grand Old Flag !
This past Friday, the kids took part in the flag raising at their school. They sang "Yankee Doodle", "You're a Grand Old Flag", "My Country Tis' of Thee", and "Battle Hymn of the Republic". The kids all looked and sounded great! At a time when it's hard to feel patriotic, These children reminded me that our country is truly great, and I am blessed to live in it.
In other news, Sarah earned the Citizen ship award at school on Thursday. Great job Sarah!
On Saturday we spent the entire day pulling weeds, tilling soil, hoeing rows and planting asparagus, onion bulbs, chives, and cilantro. It was a long hard day of work, but we are glad to have our garden started. next weekend we'll plant peas, broccoli, and lettuce. In early-mid May we should be able plant everything else. I love having a garden.
