This is My Country!

I checked out a patriotic CD from the library. We had it for only a few hours when Leland found her favorite song. She wanted to listen to it over and over. I had no idea she would pick it up so quickly. She definitely has those Gates' singing genes in her. (Everyone who knows me knows that singing is NOT a Rathburn trait.)

More about our fun patriotic week later.


  1. I LOVE that Gates trait. Bring all those good CDs to our Nana week and lets see what we can do with those non-singing Rathburn girls.

  2. Seriously brought tears to my eyes in the end. She is so cute and sweet loving her singing and her country! Chuck, for next years trip, you should teach her everything so she can preform with the group!

  3. We will have to wait and see if we can afford the DC trip - both financially and time. I am sure Leland would love it.

    All of my friends say it will be the worst summer of my life because of the Bar exam (studying 10 hours a day for 8 weeks).

  4. you gotta love Chuck in the background saying "Louder, Louder!" It was so fun to spend some more time with you guys. I am wishing we lived close enough to play on a daily...ok, weekly basis.
