Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to teach a child about the country you live in.  On Independence day we did a special mommy school all about our country.  I taught the boys about the Declaration of Independence and Thomas Jefferson.  Rex took a lot of interest in it.  Then we colored the flag and talked about the meaning of it.  It was fun and it was good for me to prepare ahead of time and brush up on my history.  

Rex worked really hard on coloring it perfectly.  This is his serious coloring face :)

This week's challenge is to rid yourself of something.  I know that sounds a bit vague, but let mw explain.  I think there are a lot of things we tend to hold onto for far too long.  It might be junk you don't need or it might even be bitter thoughts.  Let's let go of something we don't need to hang onto anymore.  Maybe that means you'll have a garage sale.  Maybe you'll forgive someone.  Maybe you'll give something you have too much of to someone who needs it.  Think outside the box.  I'm really excited to hear what you come up with.

So did anyone get to teach a child about their country?  I'd love to hear your experience.  Thanks for reading.
