Proud to be Canadian

I FINALLY heard from my husband. Well sort of. He was able to send me an e-mail from somewhere in the Ukraine.

He was speaking to a teacher out there and mentioned that it was Canada Day today. The teacher said that it was not a real celebration because we are still under the rule of the British empire and under the control of the Queen.

Well, British empire or not..Queen or not...Here in Canada we may not be perfect and we may lack in some ways, but I'm pretty GLAD I'm a Canadian.

I'm Glad for Universal Health Care,
I'm Glad for living in a safe community,
I'm Glad for Sanitation and Education,
I'm Glad for Freedom of Religion and Tolerance,

No...I'm PROUD

I'm Proud to be a Canadian....Happy Birthday Canada.

And to CELEBRATE we will Jump on Trampolines........

Drive Plastic Jeeps around the yard...

Roast Wieners and Marshmallows.....

Paint our faces (and bellies) and celebrate the day with our friends.

and wave around sparklers and write our name in the air.

Why??? because we CAN......That's Why.
