The 4th thing

#1  We had a great time celebrating the 4th of July with the neighbors this week.  One day, we had some of the kids over to tie-dye t-shirts red, white, and blue, then they decorated their bikes to ride in a patriotic parade down our street today.  My amazing neighbors all got together to cook out and share food before setting off fabulous fireworks in the backyard.  It was one of those feel good days.  Happy Independence Day!

#2 My husband starts his new job this week.  We're so happy that he has the opportunity to do what he loves.  We feel very blessed.

#3  Our daughter finally rode her bike for the first time this weekend!  No more training wheels.  Her motivation was seeing her other friends master the skill, and she wanted to ride in the 4th of July parade.  Plus, we told her that whenever she did it, we'd get her a bigger bike with the money we made at a recent yard sale.  We were proud to see her so determined to succeed- and happy that her knees no longer hit the handle bars of her old bike :-)

#4 SURPRISE!  We are expecting our third baby Jan/Feb 2011, making us a family of five, crowding out the guest room, and filling up a minivan.  We couldn't be happier!
