Happy Independence Day!

Hello and Happy Independence Day from the Dominican Republic!

 Dominican children proudly sang and danced this morning at the park in the middle of town. A group of our students laid flowers in front of the statue of Juan Pablo Duarte, the hero who led the way in freeing Dominicans from Haitian rule 169 years ago on February 27, 1844.

We are enjoying a day off of school and even postponed homeschool. Unfortunately, it's just not a good day to run out of gas for the stove so our cookie dough will have to wait until tomorrow. Baking cookies was probably not a typical way to spend the holiday anyways. Time to go outside and enjoy the sun!

Enjoy your day!
