Happy Independence Day! My many thanks to those 56 men that signed the Declaration of Independence. They knew what faced them if they signed, yet they signed anyway. Their bravery gave us the independence that we enjoy and sometimes take for granted. We remember them today.

This is an exciting 4th for us. My husband is home for the first time in 3 years to celebrate with us. I am planning a water balloon attack with the kids. hehehe.. Lots of good food, fun, and fireworks. It is one of our favorite days. Hopefully, the sun will peek out and shine on us.

And dear brother, if you are reading this, we wish you were here to celebrate with us. Hope all is well with you. We will miss you today.
