Happy 4th!

My little firecracker got left out of yesterday's photo shoot, so here she is today, sparkly red shoes and all.
We'll all go swimming this afternoon...can't wait to see my big boy show off his newly acquired swimming skills.  (Grandpa's been taking him to the pool while mom's been a tad preoccupied.)  Then we'll do some grilling with my parents, and later I'll take the "bigs" to see fireworks.  DH offered to stay home and put Jiushu to bed.  Even though he's our newest American, he's not really old enough to stay up way too late and enjoy colorful explosions in the sky.  Maybe next year. 

I'm thankful today to be a citizen of the United States.  And even more thankful that the Son has set me free!
