PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN

You are probably thinking that this post will be all patriotic and stuff...being memorial day and all. Well........sort of.

Chase's class did a unit on the olympics last week. They learned all about the different sports and how all the different countries are represented. They made their own olympic flags and talked about the fact that we are sending atheletes from the USA to compete. This was a great way for the kids to not only learn about the olympics...but also about our country. The flag that Chase made had the olympic rings on it and under them was USA. He was very excited about this and has been waving his flag for the past several days.

The other night, my parents brought dinner over and ate with us. Chase showed them his olympic flag and they were very impressed. My mom asked Chase if he knew what "USA" stood for.

Chase said seriously, "Yes I do."

and then, very patriotically and sincerely stated..."The United States of American Idol."
