I suppose he's right.

Sarah:  Peter, let me show you the Thanksgiving book I made at school.

Peter:  O.k.

Sarah:  See, here's the Mayflower.  And here's a pilgrim.  And here's an Indian. And here's...

Peter:  Actually they prefer to be called Native Americans.  Because, really, they weren't from India.

I suppose he's correct  but I miss the good old days when we could all sit Indian-style.  Criss-cross apple sauce just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Don't even get me started with the downfall of sitting "Indian-style".

How totally cute! I agree completely ~ I *still* say "Indian-style"...

I wanted to let you know that I am the webmaster for http://www.childrens-church-ministry.com, and I wanted to make an offer to you that I thought your blog readers may appreciate.

We have an eBook called “Soaring Through the Toddler and Preschool Years” that is available for purchase from our website, and I was wondering if you would be interested in giving away a few copies to your readers. The book sells for $5.95 and is available as a downloadable PDF. You can see more about the book here: http://www.childrens-church-ministry.com/soaring-through-the-toddler-and-preschool-years.html. –


If you think this downloadable eBook would be of interest to your readers, I would be willing to give away 3 copies to your readers and a copy to you as well. In exchange for this giveaway, we would appreciate a mention on your blog including a link to this page: http://www.childrens-church-ministry.com/soaring-through-the-toddler-and-preschool-years.html. –


How you choose the winners of the free download would be up to you; but one method would be to have your readers leave a comment if they would like to win, and then you could choose random winners. If you provide me with email addresses for the winners, I can take care of getting them access to the download.


Let me know if you have any questions of if you would like to run the giveaway. I can send you a free copy of the eBook as soon as I hear from you. Thanks for your consideration.

Lol. I like Indian-Style. Are they not allowed to say that now? Maybe it's not politically correct to say that anymore. Darn....what is going on with all the reading the wrong thing into comments now days? It's just too confusing and annoying to me.

I still say "Indian-Style" and so do my two Native-American Friends (who actually prefer to call themselves American Indians, btw.)

I agree.

Can't say Indian Giver anymore either....and I don't think Native American Giver would make Native Americans feel any better :)
