In America, as I’m sure most of you know, we celebrate our independence from Britain on July 4 each year. Many families and friends get together for a day in the park, BBQs, or pool parties, and set off their own fireworks (though they are illegal in some states) before the big city show once it’s really dark outside. Other popular 4th of July activities (at least in my part of the country) include camping, family reunions, and more.
One little boy at my daughter’s daycare, it would seem, is quite excited about his 4th of July plans this year. As soon as we walked in the door to pick up Little Miss, he ran over to us, and told us this:
“We used to have marshmallows, but we turned them into s’mores.”
Then he demanded, “Guess where I’m going for 4th of July!”
“I don’t know, where?” I asked, smiling.
“I can’t tell you,” he said, walking back to the toy room.
