We went and saw fireworks. Twice, actually. Once a few days before the fourth of July and once on the fourth of July. The first one was put on by our small community–they go into a field and invite everyone there to set off their own fireworks. It’s quite a good show, and the best thing is that it starts early so I can go with my kids before it gets really late. And fireworks at sunset is quite a lovely thing.
The second time we were surrounded by friends. We watched the fireworks with a lot of 11- or 12-year-old girls who are close friends with SR. I didn’t see MM much because she was playing with everyone. BB found some friends too. And so we all had a good time.
