Cinco de Mayo

Me after picking up the boys on May 5th: "Did you guys learn about Cinco de Mayo?"
Carson: "Yeah!  The Mexico people borrowed money from France.  The French wanted the money back but Mexico needed it for one more day.  So they had a war, and the Mexico people won."

Me: "What happened with the money?"
Carson: "They could keep it for one more day."

Me: "How much was it?"
Carson: "Like $10 or something.  I dunno.  But nobody from France got hurt in the war.  The Mexico people just took all of their weapons and they celebrated.  And ate a lot of tacos afterwards."

That's first grade education for you!
