Twenty-nine years ago Belize became a country. That's younger than I am! Anyway, I came to Belmopan today to watch the parade. Jessica and Joseph stayed the night at Auntie Linda's so they could watch the fireworks last night at 12:00. (Daniel celebrated this day by plowing his field for planting beans.)
There were lots of school groups. For those not familiar with Belize schools, all school children here are required to use uniform dress. I think that is so neat!
