First, I must begin by saying thank you. Thank you to the men and women who have given their lives in order for us to have and continue our current lifestyle. Thank you to the families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. Stu and I know, and we are teaching our children that freedom is never free.
I've shared our crazy, busy, jam-packed weekend fun in Our Memorial Day 2017 Recap.
This post is dedicated to hosting a party with a red, white & blue Americana theme.
Red, White and Blue
I basically feel that way often. I will be going about my day, thinking it's Tuesday and then find out it's actually Wednesday - or worse, Monday!
Summer makes that feeling even more prominent. Since the kids don't have any place to be and my schedule allows me to be uber flexible, I have to make a concerted effort to know the day. I bought a fancy-schmancy agenda to keep all of my crazy plans in check. Also, I have to know things like "When do the kids have karate?" "Is today gear day?" "What am I going to write about this week?"
And that brings me to today... I totally spaced on the day. I try to post on Tuesdays and Fridays. But the 3-day weekend threw me off.
I asked the kids what I should write about. It's been one of those weeks where I have been a tired Mommy - not a Pinterest-inspired, creative monster Mom. And I had to look for writing inspiration. Rea told me to write about the 4th of July. Good idea!
There is little I like more than a holiday! Something about the energy of the day makes me giddy.
