July 4th in our house usually ends up being just Lillian, Claire and myself at home. Josh is usually scheduled to work or roped into working overtime. This year was different. This year, Josh only had to work a few hours in the morning and was home when the girls were starting to wake up. Our heat wave has continued and so has our drought, but we ignored that for a short time in the morning and played in the new snake sprinkler in the yard.
We had a great holiday this year. It was wonderful having Josh home with us and feeling like a normal family together on a holiday.
