Reigstered as Citizens today

Today the kids and I kept an appointment with the U.S. Consulate downtown. Signed 'em up to be U.S. citizens (and also to get a Social Security number).

We had celebratory Slushies on the way home (there was a 7-11 just a block away), and we also stopped by a discount/liquidators store, where I bought the kids a ball each (about the size of a small volleyball), and a maracca, to mark the occasion. Because, uh... American citizenship, to me, means inflatable balls and shaken percussion instruments.

The Girl enjoyed taking the bus (the appointment was downtown -- very little parking, and all of it pricey).

Ice cream and fireworks with the Boston Pops playing the Stars and Stripes Forever.

What's more American than bright blue Super-sized Slushies? Good job.
