Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day, everyone! This is Hubby's favorite holiday. I think it stems from, one, he loves American History. In college he double majored in journalism and political science. The other reason he likes it so much is that the Fourth of July does not present all of the stress and pressure that Christmas and Thanksgiving have. It's a day to relax, spend time with family, and thank God for the blessings and privileges that come with being an American. While this isn't my ultimate favorite holiday, I have come to love and appreciate it with enthusiam, as we always have a great time, while thinking of the brave Americans who have fought for the freedoms we enjoy and tend to take for granted.

This morning we woke up to the sound of thunder and heavy rain hitting the condo roof. Not a sound you want to hear on the first full day of your beach vacation. The children were oh so disappointed, inconsolable, really. That is until... Grandaddy saved the day! Grandaddy came down to our unit with umbrella in hand, asking to take them to their condo since he just got back from the store where he bought donuts and chocolate milk. Aren't Grandaddies great like that? Holla, Grandaddy!

Grandaddy looks like he is being all patriotic in this picture. He is truly a patriotic person and is in fact, my very favorite veteran. However, he is really covering his work badge. Their badges are not supposed to be photographed and he remembered having it on at the last second.

In other news, I am really enjoying my Proverbs study and have some wonderful things I plan to blog about soon. Chapters 3 and 4 have especially given me some great insights. For now, though, I shall go enjoy the quiet condo with Hubby and cheer him on as he is blowing up Star Trek ships on the wii.

God Bless America, over and out!
