We started our Fourth of July celebrations early this morning here in the land north of our Nation’s capitol. We dressed up the kids and our wagon, and we marched in a community parade that has existed nearly as long as our city. (Which is to say, about 40 years. )
The kids had fun until they turned on each other and me, but really, it isn’t a holiday until I start screaming at my kids about candy in front of a crowd of waving on-lookers.
I hope everyone here in the US of A enjoys a safe celebration of the day we signed for our freedom. And let’s not forget what it could otherwise have been here in our great nation:
Happy Independence Day, America!
