6 R's for 1 Smart Fourth of July

Tomorrow is Independence Day! Take a minute and get your celebration off to a great start with these 6 R's for 1 Smart Fourth of July!

Read and reflect on Kevin Schmiesing's article for the Acton Institute, "The Paradox of Liberty," and remember why we're celebrating.

Review your citizenship know-how with the civic literacy quiz from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute. Can you beat the 49% average of Americans who took the test last year?

Request a *FREE* pocket-size copy of the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence from the Heritage Foundation. Keep one in the car so your kids can quiz each other on your next road trip.

Relax with your family, and check out my friend Jen Schmidt's blog, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam for some smart ways to enjoy the weekend. She has some great recipes and activities for you to try out this year.
