Happy 4th!

I love the 4th of July! I love bbqs and friends and Steve getting a day off work. I'm grateful for this country that we live in and the freedoms that we have. I'm grateful for all of the brave men and women who fight for those freedoms and my prayers are with them and their families.

Easton is finally feeling better, it has been a very long, hard, emotionally draining couple of weeks. We got blessed with a kid who doesn't really get sick very often, so when he does I never know what to do. I'm just glad he's feeling better, even though we never really knew what the heck was wrong with him!

Everyone be safe tonight, and be sure to blog about all the fun stuff you did. You know I will!

I'm so glad our boy is feeling better, I was getting a little nrevous there.
I sure love this country and the great reminder the 4th is too! Would we ever really stop and think about it if it weren't a holiday? I hope so.
Hope you had a real fun day.

I am so glad to be an American. Thanks for the patriotic blog. I am so grateful to have a holiday that is set aside especially for honoring America. What a great country we live in. How divinely inspired our early patriots were. Glad that they were quiet enough to listen to the promptings of a higher being to direct their steps.

Glad that Easton is feeling better. I hate it when the kids get feeling lousy. It becomes a guessing game to try to figure out what to do for them.

Haven't totally forgot about the sofa, will do some serious checking this week and I'll let you know.

Love ya

I didn't know he was sick! Poor baby. Hey, we just did the pee bag too! No UTI here, either. It seems I always do the wrong thing. When my kid's symptoms are nothing, they get bigger, and when I take them to the doctor with symptoms, it really is nothing and I'm embarrassed and out $15. I feel like I missed out on that mother's intuition thing.
