Presidential Birthdays: Kennedy and Bush Sr.

By Richie Ann Ashcraft

We celebrated the belated birthdays of Kennedy and Bush Sr. last night. Their birthdays are May 29 and June 12th.

There's a reason the birthday are so belated.

The reason being that I dropped the subject for awhile after I realized that we had missed a couple. I wanted to see if Soren would notice because if you remember, this is his project, not mine.

It finally came up over dinner, "Hey, why haven't we done any presidential birthdays lately?"

Soren says "Yeah, mom, why?"

Then, I went into my mom lecture about why. I don't mind helping out by making fish chowder (Kennedy's favorite) but I'm not in charge of this project.

I guess Soren decided that was fair enough because he took it upon himself to get back on track by updating the July calendar and looking up things about H.W. and Kennedy.

He thought Bush Sr. was cool but he was VERY interested in Kennedy. And, of course, who wouldn't be. The guy was a superstar.

Did you know he won a Pulitzer prize in literature? I found that tidbit fascinating at our dinner table last night.

"Who's Marilyn Monroe?"

That brought some smiles to Marty and I who did our best to casually explain that yes, sometimes men have wives and girlfriends.

Soren liked both of the president's military service records.

I think Kennedy's colorful life renewed Soren's interest in finding out about the presidents. At least for now, he seems back on track.
