4th of July

Happy 4th of July!


We're having a quiet 4th of July at home. Our flag is flying out front and we're wearing our red white and blue. No fireworks or anything fancy though. As a matter of fact, we put the children down at the usual time and skip fireworks altogether. They're early risers regardless of when they go to bed and they don't even know what fireworks are...so they're not at all upset to go to bed at their usual time.


We did, however, make a trip to Home Depot to see the firetruck, ambulance, and fire boat that were visiting there today. Those were huge hits, of course, especially with Handsome!!

Happy 4th of July, everyone!

OK< I promised Jess I would comment, so here I am! I find your blog fascinating! can you post more about how you find time for all these things? I am way too brain dead after the kids go to bed to do anything remotely creative! And, my kids would never never never stand for the fridge magnets being so orderly :) How many times do you have to pick them back up each day?? Perhaps your children as just more well trained than my heathens.

Thanks, Rae!

Hey, Naomi! Oh the fridge magnets aren't *always* that orderly...that's just how I prefer them to be! As for how I find time for these things--I have to have time for these things...if I don't have some sort of creative outlet, I go crazy!! Plus both my little ones nap (or at least have quiet time) for about 1.5 hours a day, so a lot of this happens during naptime. I looooove naptime!
