The Pledge of Allegiance

Sophia had to learn the pledge of allegiance for King's Kids at our church. I know, I know, we're homeschoolers because she's in first grade and didn't know any of the pledges...ooops. Because we said it a bazillion times, Elijah caught on and I took this sweet video of him saying the pledge. My favorite line is "indibibital, with libty and justice...". I love my boy, he's just so irresistable!!

Noah, on the other hand enthusiastically says, "I pledge allegiance to da, I did it!!!!" Tonight just before I put him to be, he surprised me with his own rendition of the pledge. Listen carefully for "to the public (republic)", he says it, but you have to listen carefully to that part. The rest is pretty clear except for that he gets tripped up on "United States of America" for some reason. Maybe it's because he's not 2 years old yet. This boy never ceases to amaze with his antics. He's such a whip and I love him.

Ha! That cracks me up! I've watched the video about three times between last night and this morning. :)

I think it is so cute how he has trouble with "United States of America" but on the second try, he gets "indivisible" just right. :D He's too smart for his own good! ;)

I think the funniest thing about him knowing the pledge is that we didn't even teach it to him. We said it over and over so Sophia could learn it and Elijah picked up on it, but I had no idea Noah was or even could learn it.

Then when I was changing him for bed he just proceeded to recite it for me. I was so surprised!

Rachel, we third borns never cease to amaze, do we!?

When Noah was saying the pledge it reminded my of being in a foreign service with a translator :) The one person says it in English then the other guy will continue on for twice as long saying the same thing :P

The boys were very cute :)
