Our All-American Cutie Pie!
My oldest sister Kristen. She homeschooled her 3 boys for 7 years – now they attend public schools. She is a virtual high-school math teacher – she teaches full-time on-line from her home to homeschool students! Her husband is a pastor at our church.
My middle sister (I’m the baby) Jennifer. She is a part-time teacher at her children’s Christian school and her husband designs custom homes. He comes in handy for all sorts of home interior design advice!
The grandparents and great grandparents. This is the foundation and wisdom of our family.
The yearly dirt cake!
Fireworks in our backyard! Last year when we spent our first summer in our new home, we discovered that they do fireworks over a lake that is 2 minutes from our home! So we have our own backyard fireworks display!!! This was the perfect ending to our July 4th celebration!
And I’m reminded of our founding fathers on this precious day:
“Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. … Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.” ~John Hancock -1st Signer of the Declaration of Independence
