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.
K: You would have had to get up early in the morning to do farm chores.
Z decided to wear purple with a red flower.
