Smart Girl

Yesterday we all discussed what happened 12 years ago in America.

My oldest was 6 years old when the attack happened.

Now my youngest is 6.

I tried to explain the event to her in simple forms.

We remember those who needlessly perished in the events.

We honor the people who went above and beyond to save others  that day…

those that are still with us and those that were buried in the rubble doing courageous acts.

We pray for the families that lost loved ones.

We never forget.

At the end of the day she drew a picture to show her Daddy what she learned.


She went to church last night and prayed for the children left behind.

Children understand more than we give them credit for sometimes.


Email I just got…

Please share and pass this on!

*I DO NOT APOLOGIZE FOR SENDING THIS, BECAUSE IT’S TRUE* *If any other of our presidents had doubled the national debt, which had taken more than two centuries to accumulate, in one year, would you have approved?*

*If any other of our presidents had then proposed to double the debt again within 10 years, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had criticized a state law that he admitted he never even read, would you think that he is just an ignorant hot head? *

*If any other of our presidents joined the country of Mexico and sued a state in the United States to force that state to continue to allow illegal immigration, would you question his patriotism and wonder who’s side he was on?

*If any other of our presidents had pronounced the Marine Corps like Marine Corpse, would you think him an idiot? *

*If any other of our presidents had put 87,000 workers out of work by arbitrarily placing a moratorium on offshore oil drilling on companies that have one of the best safety records of any industry because one foreign company had an accident, would you have agreed? *

*If any other of our presidents had used a forged document as the basis of the moratorium that would render 87000 American workers unemployed would you support him?

*If any other of our presidents had been the first President to need a Teleprompter installed to be able to get through a press conference, would you have laughed and said this is more proof of how inept he is on his own and is really controlled by smarter men behind the scenes? *

*If any other of our presidents had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to take his First Lady to a play in NYC, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had reduced your retirement plan holdings of GM stock by 90% and given the unions a majority stake in GM, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had made a joke at the expense of the Special Olympics, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had given Gordon Brown a set of inexpensive and incorrectly formatted DVDs, when Gordon Brown had given him a thoughtful and historically significant gift, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had given the Queen of England an iPod containing videos of his speeches, would you have thought it a proud moment for America ? *

*If any other of our presidents had bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had visited Austria and made reference to the nonexistent “Austrian language,” would you have brushed it off as a minor slip? *

*If any other of our presidents had filled his cabinet and circle of advisers with people who cannot seem to keep current in their income taxes, would you have approved? *

*If any other of our presidents had stated that there were 57 states in the United States , wouldn’t you have had second thoughts about his capabilities? *

*If any other of our presidents would have flown all the way to Denmark to make a five minute speech about how the Olympics would benefit him walking out his front door in his home town, would you not have thought he was a self-important, conceited, egotistical jerk. *

*If any other of our presidents had been so Spanish illiterate as to refer to “Cinco de Cuatro” in front of the Mexican ambassador when it was the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), and continued to flub it when he tried again, wouldn’t you have winced in embarrassment? *

*If any other of our presidents had burned 9,000 gallons of jet fuel to go plant a single tree on Earth Day, would you have concluded he’s a hypocrite?*

*If any other of our presidents’ administrations had okayed Air Force One flying low over millions of people followed by a jet fighter in downtown Manhattan causing widespread panic, would you have wondered whether they actually get what happened on 9-11? *

*If any other of our presidents had failed to send relief aid to flood victims throughout the Midwest with more people killed or made homeless than in New Orleans , would you want it made into a major ongoing political issue with claims of racism and incompetence? *

*If any other of our presidents had created the position of 32 Czars who report directly to him, bypassing the House and Senate on much of what is happening in America , would you have ever approved. *

*If any other of our presidents had ordered the firing of the CEO of a major corporation, even though he had no constitutional authority to do so, would you have approved? *

*So, tell me again, what is it about Obama that makes him so brilliant and impressive? * *Can’t think of anything? Don’t worry. He’s done all this in 24 months -so you have that much time to come up with an answer.*

*Every statement and action in this email is factual and directly attributable to Barrack Hussein Obama. Every bumble is a matter of record and completely verifiable. * AND NOW–HE ACTUALLY WANTS US TO RE-ELECT HIM. WAKE UP AMERICA 2012 IS UPON US.



*”All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”*

Makes you think….

Did You Get Your Tickets?

I just got our “date night” tickets to see this movie.

It is only in theaters for one night.

It is about stuff that I have been teaching the kids about this year. The fact that our history lessons in public school, shoot for me when I was in private school as well, tend to forget how our country actually began. We tend to look at the pilgrims just as people in funny outfits that sailed the ocean blue in 1642. There is so much more to the story. There is so much more to the Revolutionary war. There is so much more to our founding fathers….so much history that we skim over but is vitally important to our nation. If we forget that God helped us to found this great nation we are bound to fail. So many things have been forgotten, misquoted, turned around and adjusted to fit with the noisy maladjusted who wanted to have a say…its terrible. We are learning history from old documents. The original documents. We even have a copy of the Declaration of Independence up in our house.

I know I have already heard, its just old information. Why am I wasting my time teaching the kids about old stuff when our country has changed so much?

Our country was based on certain principals that have been lost over time. I do not see them being lost for the better. Do you know that only one president has ever run this country without us being in debt? Do you know who he was? It was Andrew Jackson, our 7th president. Did you know he never even went to college? How much did you actually learn about the leaders of our country from the past? Did you even care back when you were in school?


You know why? We were not taught to be true Americans and to be so over the top proud of this amazing country we live in that was based on God. Treating each other as equals and doing what is right. If you really think about it, we were just given the basic facts and not all of them true. George Washington and the cherry tree is false but most Americans believe it to be fact. See???

I am glad Kirk Cameron made this movie. I hope it makes people think and get out there, get to the original documents, learn about our true past and use that information to help make this country even better for our kids! Maybe it will get people into politics and this next election will be about the facts not about who can twitter and facebook!!
