There's nothing like full and busy weekend . . that you want to be full and busy.
Believe me, I was not dissappointed!
I love Independance Day and the accompanying festivities. Late summer nights, BBQs, friends and family, fireworks, patriotic music (LOVE it), red, white, and blue, more fireworks, sun, The Star-Spangled Banner, America the Beautiful, Freedom, God. It's quite a goose-bumpy celebration with all the passion, courage, and honor that give the 4th of July real meaning. So I offer a resounding, "God bless America!" And I really mean it. In my small way, my little sphere of influence, I'm fighting to preserve the spirit of our nation. I love this country.
We celebrated the weekend away. A patriotic concert at the college, day at the lake with music, fireworks, and a humongous flag held up by a bright red crane, parade (that Brigham and Will both participated in), BBQ with the fam, more fireworks, and I sang in a choir for a Celebration of Liberty program full of music, speakers, and a re-enactment of the Virginia Second Convention. You know, Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death!" speech. Inspiring, I loved it.
