Presidents Day - My WAHM Plan

Presidents Day

Source
I am proud to be an American, but have never considered myself a History buff. As I was planning for today, I realized that my recall of the facts surrounding this holiday were a bit rusty. Sure, I remembered it is to honor Presidents Washington and Lincoln, but other facts, like dates, escaped me.

Do you need a refresher too?

I found a great, to the point article over at dosomething.org. Here's the link:

Why Do We Celebrate Presidents' Day?

I also found a fun quiz from FamilyEducation.com called Positively Presidential.

I am going to take it first, to test my knowledge prior to showing this to my smarties ( who will probably know more than me)!

Want to test your Presidential knowledge too? Go Here to take the quiz.


So what are your plans for today? Do you have the day off from work? Are your kids out of school too?

For us, hubby is working, I'm working hard on getting my JAFRA business launched from home while spending time with my girls.

The one thing I won't be doing is shopping any sales. But I will enjoy this relaxing day and pray for our President and all those who lead our wonderful country.

I hope you and yours have a wonderful day!
