These are the ramblings of an eclectic and whimsical homeschooling family of eight... a little peek, if you will, inside the daily dawdlings and habits of my active and delightful family seeking to please the Lord in all we do! Hopefully our thoughts, observations, and activities will challenge you, inspire you, tickle you, cheer you, and let you know you are not the only one!

4th of July festivities!

I hope you all had as wonderful a 4th celebration as we did!! We celebrated the 4th at my mother's house with a wonderful cookout which is a family tradition. Mom went all out, as usual! We had ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken from the grill. She also grilled zucchini and squash with onion. Yummy! And, it wouldn't be the 4th without her famous potato salad!! It is a highlight of any cookout at Mom's house!! We spent the afternoon and evening there eating, playing, and having a grand time!!
Even Maddie and Ella enjoyed themselves!
Unfortunately, we've been in a drought situation here so many types of fireworks were banned this 4th of July. But, we were allowed to light sparklers and other colorful fireworks as long as they didn't fly. That didn't dampen our fun because sparklers and the other 'milder' fireworks are all we like to do anyway. So, the day ended WAY past our bedtime but no one could bring themselves to leave Nana's... and Nana doesn't help much since she can't bear to see us leave! Ha! Ha! It was a joyous and grand event... as usual! Thanks, Mom!! You're the best mom, mother-in-law and Nana any family could ever hope to have!!
