Easy Breezy for the 4th of July

As  a toddler, my son Jay loved the 4th of July. He appreciated the red, white and blue decorations around the house. With great pride, he helped hang a crisp new American flag on the front porch. He clapped with each and every flash, bang and  pop of the fireworks. It was marvelous!

He called it "America Time."
