4 ways I helped this family become more American just today:
1. I taught William to sing the Yankee Doodle song AND recite the Preamble to the US Constitution. He's learning, but he proudly says, "We are the order to form...a perfect union...establish (or something that sounds similar to establish) justice...assure tranquility...the constitution."
2. William and I had a mock birthday party where he learned how to play pin the tail on the donkey and sang "Happy birthday to you. You live in a zoo. You look like a monkey and you smell like one too."
3. Then we watched a scene from Garfield's Halloween Adventure so they could understand "trick-or-treating."
4. We ended the night with Ivanka learning how to cook a potato in the microwave. It's changed her world of cooking...for better or worse-I'm not sure.
