Every Heart Beats True to the Pink, White and Blue


Here's a little conversation from our family this morning. Krista was helping Z get dressed, and helping her get on red, white and blue clothes in honor of the U.S.A.'s birthday.

Z: Why are the colors red, white and blue?

K: That's because they chose those colors for our nation's flag.

Z: I should have been there to choose what colors, we should have had blue, white and pink.

K: Well, they were chosen a few hundred years ago.

Z: I still should have been there.

K: If you had been there a few hundred years ago there would have been no hot water for your bath.

Z: Oh.

K: You would have had to get up early in the morning to do farm chores.

Z: Oh.

Z decided to wear purple with a red flower.
