Then that night we went to a fabulous fireworks display. The place we go to is great because we can lay out on a blanket in a big open field. They have vendors for food and drink and lets not forget the souvenirs. The girls got glow in the dark swords so they could be Jedi Knights.
The town even provides porta potties which comes in handy with little girls who love to drink lots of juice. They play music and have people dressed up in alien costumes dancing around. I wonder if there illegal aliens LOL.
Well as they say monkey see, monkey do here comes Angelina too. With reluctance I took off the training wheels fulling expecting to put them back on in a few minutes of failure. But to my surprise within 15 minutes or so she was off and running. I think when I was four we still used tricycles and maybe big wheels. That was how we got away from the dinosaurs back in the day.
Honestly I'm amazed at what they teach children in kindergarten now days. I think when we were kids we majored in coloring and eating paste. Leona finished kindergarten knowing how to read and write. They hope by the end og kindergarten to have kids look at a picture and write two or three sentences. Leona will write four or five.
When it comes to math again I'm impressed she can count to 100 by ones, two's fives, and tens. She can count backwards from 30 and she can do some basic addition and subtraction. I was told that they are teaching first grade level at kindergarten now.
We got to show her how to go threw a cafeteria line and pay for the meal. And when done with the meal how to trow away the trash and put the tray and silverware in the proper place to be washed. It is amazing how we take such simple things for granted and forget that someone had to teach us such simplistic things.
Needless to say Leona was excited to have us there with her, but Angelina was disappointed to not be able to go back to the class room after lunch. It had been many years since I had school lunch and i hate to say not much has changed in taste.

Well today is Fathers Day the day we celebrate fathers. Being a father is such an awesome experience. It is also an awesome responsibility. God has entrusted me with two precious little souls that are mine to shape and develop. It is up to me to teach them how to be decent, upright young ladies.
It is up to daddy to teach them right from wrong good from evil. It is my responsibility to deliver those precious souls entrusted to me by God, back to God. It is my job to teach them to love the Lord their God with all their hearts minds and souls, and to love their neighbors as themselves. So far I am encouraged because the kids seem to be on track.
