New Year's Day

On New Year's Day, we got outside and enjoyed a little piece of history. As it turns out, the first flag of the United Colonies was raised nearby on January 1, 1776 by General George Washington and his army. There was a nearly-hour-long program, which Bruce was totally bored by and obviously didn't listen to. Phoebe must have been bored and tired too because she slept through the entire thing, which is too bad because she would have liked all the dogs and Washington's horse. When the flag was finally hoisted at the end, Bruce said, "That's the wrong flag!"
