We had beautiful weather for the 4th of July this year, thank heavens! After the rain and cold last year, the sun was very welcome. We just hung around during the day (I cleaned, of course!) and then had our usual BBQ and fireworks in the evening. It was different this year because the 3 older kids had their own things going with friends so it was just Tim and I and the 5 younger kids. 5 kids feels like nothing! I missed the older kids, but was glad they could have fun with their friends. I hope we're all together next year though!
