Happy 4th of July!!

We had a nice Fourth of July here. The weather was damp and cool, but we hung around the house
baking bread and making pizza and doing crafts.Princess and I picked lettuce and Swiss chard
and Farmer Dad picked yellow squash and beans.They made a lovely side to our pizza for lunch.
We read a little bit of Constitution Translated for Kids by Cathy Travis
and then late in the afternoon we headed out to our friends home to picnic and
then hung out inside watching a movie and chatting when it rained.
The rain stopped just in time for the fireworks, so we headed over to a nearby park and enjoyed the show.
The kids all had fun and the adults did too. Princess actually fell asleep in the car on the way home (very rare) and then woke up when carried inside for jammies and bed. We all crawled into our bed to cuddle up and watch the Boston Pops on tv- even our cat,Alley.Princess slept late today and has been coloring and taking turns with me at being the "cashier" at our little grocery store. Tonight we'll head to a local theater to view Ratatouille.
Princess and I have been waiting to see it for quite some time.She is very into all things "cooking".

IT sounds like a great day was had by all. We seem to have had the same weather...the only damper was no fireworks!

The sun is coming out, so hopefully you'll get some nice weather today too Angela!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
