Presidents Day was yesterday

  Presidents Day was yesterday, we celebrated all Presidents past and present.  The Holiday, on a Monday since 1961 is important in our family.  Hollie thinks it's more important than Christmas (that's her opinion as an autistic individual).  Here are some Presidential fun facts:

 President Lincoln was a licensed bar tender, and the only President that had been a bar tender.  Who knew?  Lincoln was a man of many talents, and a man who made a living any way he could. Cheers!

 President Roosevelt and his family, first lady too, all owned and used stilts.  Roosevelt was a fun loving and adventuresome man and enjoyed the time he spent with his family.

  President Harding loved his dog.  A lot.  Laddie Boy attended meetings with the President and his Cabinet; Laddie Boy even had his own chair in the Cabinet Room.

  President Grant was the first President to see the Pacific Ocean.  Also the first to view the Great Wall of China and the Pyramids of Egypt.
