Identity Crisis:

I think the colonists struggled with identity crisis because they most likely didn’t feel ready to be their own country yet, because they had a lot to worry about. I think it must have been really chaotic after they won the war. They were probably so used to being “the colonists” and being “owned” by Britain. But as we know, they got over it and it all worked out in the end!

The most Important thing about the American Revolution

I consider the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence to be the most important thing about the American Revolution. It was obvious to both sides of the affair that the British were the ones with the most power in this situation.  It was a time in our history where the colonists decided to fully stand up to the British and aggressively tell them what needed to be done and why it wasn’t fair that the British had control over the colonists.  A lot of times it is hard to stand up for ourselves and tell others that whether they like it or not what they are doing must come to an end. I think the colonists were very brave to write the Declaration because they had to fully defend their point of view so that the British understood what they were talking about. I think it’s sort of like what we are currently doing in social studies with the treaty of Paris, defending our opinions.  Over all, I have come to the conclusion that the Declaration must have been something really hard to write.

George Washington

I think that if I were George Washington I would be very discouraged by the time we were out of supplies at Valley Forge. As much as I hate being cold, I would especially not want to be fighting against people like the British who were better and more trained than I was. I really admire George Washington as he kept on fighting even though he and his men went through a bunch of epic fails! I admire him because he could have surrendered, but instead he didn’t give up!



Nuestro versículo este semana es Isaías 41:10- Así que no temas, porque yo estoy contigo; no te angusties, porque yo soy tu Dios. Te fortaleceré y te angustiaré; te sostendré con mi diestra victoriosa. Muy corto este semana, buena suerte! 🙂



We band players recently received two new pages of music that are really fun!-at least I think so 🙂 One is called Colonial March, and the other is called Shake, Rattle, and Roll. I especially enjoy playing Shake, Rattle, and Roll. Our band will be marching in the memorial day parade, and will be playing these songs, I think we are all pretty excited!
