Today we held our second annual Freedom Challenge. We all have to make something that represents freedom or America. Last year Sam won with his Fire Cracker glasses. This year Jay stole the show with his American Turkey Foot. Jay told the story that Benjamin Franklin wanted to have the turkey as the national symbol not the bald eagle. Jay used a turkey foot and tied red, white and blue thread on it. He won hands down. Every year I am surprised with my family's creativity. As George S. Patton said "Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity."
I am an older mom with multiples. To say it the P.C. way, I have "advanced maternal age".
