Today is the day we celebrate our nation’s independence from our Mother country.  on July 4, 1776, the United States Declaration of Independence was adopted, officially announcing our separation from Great Britain.

There’s another independence that is observed in our country every day.  It is the collection of little things our children do as they grow…walk, potty train, ride a bike, have their first sleepover, learn to drive, go to college. 

Take a moment today and celebrate the accomplishments of your young independent thinker.  And, Happy Independence Day.
