Presidents’ Day is rounding the corner, right on the heels of the much-anticipated State of the Union address. So what does that mean for you?
Well not much unless the child in your life hopes one day to be President. So that must rule out someone.
BUT, these sorts of national holidays are always a good time to get the youth of America excited about our government! Though our country’s illustrious history is only 243 years young, we’ve covered LOADS of ground since then. I don’t know about you, but most 9 year olds I run into know more about the branches of our government than I do!
That’s not very fun, though, and in truth, I don’t know how they can stomach it – the checks, the balances, all that vetoing.
Celebrate what makes our country special, now and then. And as always, keep it fun!
