HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

I hope that everyone has a wonderful and sunny fourth of July. We arent doing much today. I am baking a patriotic cake for desert tonight. I am not a very good baker but I am going to try. Tomorrow night is firework night. I promised the kids that I would take them although I dont like the crowds. I told them they could play a few games. The fire company here always hosts a fund raiser with some games for the kids. They have alot of fun. I will just have to try to keep from having a panic attack from the crowds.

Today the kids and I sat down to discuss what the true meaning of July fourth. I wanted to make sure that they inderstood that in the midst of picnics and fireworks and games.

Well I am going to go and try to make that cake. Have fun everyone and stay safe this holiday weekend.

(I pulled these off a forward someone gave me. I loved them so I wanted to add them in my journal)

God bless America and our troops.

Have a wonderful weekend, Christine! Focus on the fireworks, maybe they'll take your mind off the crowd.

I think it's neat that you talked with the kids about what this day means. We should never take it for granted!

Hugs,
Beth
