Have a Lovely Fourth of July
I hope that your days will be filled with joy and laughter
and all that is good.
This is a picture of last year. It is one of my favorites
with all of the older kids trying to play a game and having
babies on their laps.
That is one of the nice things about having lots of people in
our family there is always someone to hold a baby.
I took a picture of this because it makes me think of
all of the things I love about summer it is the smell of the
crispy hot grass in the lawn, the smell of chlorine from the pool.
The sound of kids laughing and playing in the water.
Pool toys waiting to be floated on and splashed with and
all of the things that make summer the best part of the year.
(I am saying that now because I am not tired of it yet.)
I hope you have lots of fun and as I do, I try to remember
the people who gave up everything so we could have the freedom
we have today.
One of my books I try to read when I can, is Lives of the Signers.
It is a reprint of a old book but it breaks your heart to see what happened
to the people who signed the Declaration of Independence.
Have a wonderful day,
