I want to talk about why I'm so lucky to be part of a really big family and how happy I am to live closer to them finally. I want to talk about our homeschool discernment process and how learning new things really teaches you new things about yourself. I want to tell you the story of our amazing fellow parishioners who just said yes to a surprise call (both a literal call AND a spiritual call!) to adoption and brought their brand new baby boy to be baptized just this weekend. I want to talk to you about a hundred tomatoes and a thousand blackberries and a hen that's probably a rooster and how my oldest daughter said that yesterday was the best 4th of July in her whole life even though we didn't DO anything really and why it melted my heart and what it taught me.
And our sewing projects and our soon-to-be canning projects (hopefully) and that our anniversary turned out to be a fabulous day after all and how the world really IS how you see it.
But I don't know where to start. So instead I will say thank-you to Charlotte at Waltzing Matilda ( a fellow UD alum, soon-to-be mom of 5 & a homeschooler) who inspired us to make our own Independence Day t-shirts during our stay-at-home-and-let-Tommy-work-even-though-the-air-conditioner-is-broken holiday. They turned out great and we had a bucket of fun making them!
