Thanks, Addie! It actually is my birthday today. I spent the day with my parents. Took them (& 2 wheelchairs & a walker) to see "Brave" then to Olive Garden for lunch. By the time we got home we were stuffed & ready for a nap. An evening of TV fireworks, a little reading, then I'll be off to bed. Hope everyone stayed cool today (warm for you, Kylie). :grin:

My favorite thing about today is when our news station show our new citizens taking their oath. So many of them have tears running down their cheeks. I have been to a couple of swearing in ceremonies at Fanueil Hall. It always brings tears to my eyes. They also hold a ceremony on the USS Constitution. (Old Ironsides)

Wasn't July 1st Canada Day?

I am cleaning up from my day of teaching.

I had 5 10 - 12 year olds and 2 leaders for cupcake decorating from 1:30 to 3:00, then got cleaned up for my regular students at 3:30. We did roses today and these two young women (going into grade 11) show their teacher up by a mile (and there teacher is grinning from ear to ear). Fondant roses can be tricky the first time and theirs were gorgeous!

Next I will be putting my feet up and watching "Independance Day". Very appropriate for the day!

Oh, my house got cleaned for me this morning too so it was a banner day

Yep, we may be younger than you Americans, but we get to celebrate first!
