We're in Sand Springs, OK this week with family for Thanksgiving. There's no place like home for the holidays!
Conversation between Ryan and I yesterday as we drove to my Grandmother's house:
"Mom, a lot of people in Oklahoma have American flags too! Like people in Texas!"
"Ryan, that's because Oklahoma is an state just like Texas is a state. They're just 2 of the 50 states in the United States of America. " [I'm trying not to raise him like a typical Texan, believing that Texas is it's own country.]
"Oh. I see."
"Can you think of other states?"
"Yeah....like Arkansas. And Broken Arrow. [a suburb of Tulsa] And England."
England? I think a globe might be good idea for a Christmas present.
I can't believe that after living in TEXAS for how long has it been now 8 or 9 years that you don't think Texas IS A COUNTRY ALL IT'S OWN!
That is funny.
Welcome home! ;)
...to Thanksgiving and the 80 degree weather!
