"Why do we celebrate July?"
"Well, all month long there are parades and fireworks and BBQs and parties."
"Is it for my birthday?"
Oh how could they have missed our numerous lessons about freedom, our country, freedom to worship, and the pioneers entering the valley to escape persecution?
Kids climbed the rock wall,
Followed by family games
I'd never met many of the people who came. They live in our neighborhood, but hide until July brings them out. They go home thrilled to live in such a great neighborhood. Who do they think puts these things on? Someone had to plan for months, then set up since 2:00. Who do you think that was? Well, my kids were satisfied, no, thrilled. Celebrating July is now complete. And why not? I suppose celebrating with those with live among is really celebrating.
