Heart Like the 4th of July…

It was another great 4th of July week complete with all the great holiday traditions: carnival rides, a devoured elephant ear, a 1 1/2 hour town parade, spending time with family and neighbors, cookouts, a backyard game of soccer with 13 boys, a jazz concert on the lawn, and of course fireworks!

The temperatures were so enjoyable this year for Indiana in July, and the boys didn’t mind the carnival turned water park due to a rainstorm one bit! 

I love watching our boys celebrate in their own ways – waving the flags on the parade sidelines, getting engrossed in the fireworks, decorating our yard with flags that they’ve been collecting, and talking about what “independence” means in their own words.

    Highlights: seeing my 29th hometown Independence Day parade, knowing that I will miss it for the next several years for the first time in my life…watching my babies’ wonder at the flying magical candy…speaking with immigrants-turned-citizens who are more patriotic than most born here.

    Sounds like you had a fun weekend!
    4 years ago our family started a tradition of running the 5k along our local parade route. It’s a party atmosphere with music and people cheering – lots of fun.
    My sister has had a number of health challenges and wasn’t able to join us for the race last July. But this year my mom was able to push her in the wheelchair and then my brother and I helped her walk the last 50 yards and across the finish line. It was a sweet moment to see the smile on her face.
