Planning for the 4th of July

Looking to plan a party or a 4th of July event? Want to find some great fourth of July recipes? Simply want to learn the names of all fifty states? I gotcha covered.
If you want to experience a blast from my past, then click on the video above. It’s the song that we sang in my 6th grade Patriotic Program. I represented Texas with a white button-down shirt, red bandana, and a cowboy hat. My hair might have been in a French braid.
Forget the fact that I’ve never been to Texas — then or since — I was ready to do-see-do.
My sisters and I learned all fifty states — in ALPHABETICAL ORDER — thanks to this song. It’s been helpful for at least two things:
As should you be. Yes, ma’am.
And if it didn’t drive my husband crazy, I would sing this song all week until my kids knew all the words — and therefore, all the states in the union. Maybe we’ll sing it while he’s at work…. We’ll plan a party for the 4th.
