Happy 4th & Turtle Naming Contest

Happy 4th of July for all my American friends. For my others, happy summer Monday (unless you're down under, then Happy Monday only.)

One of my favorite summer memories is when we used to pop down to Warsaw, Mo where my great grandma Leverta lived and attend their Jubilee Days festival. Of course as kids, our favorite part was the turtle races. We'd look for days ahead of time to procure and train our turtle. I got to thinking about those times when  a turtle wandered into our lives yesterday...

So today, I just wanted to mention the little one and I have a Turtle naming contest going on over on our homeschool blog. He needs a name desperately and the little one has offered up a nice prize, as have I. Come on over and Name That Turtle!

Have a wonderful 4th, and don't burn yourself on those fireworks!
