We had a fabulous 4th of July... it was practically perfect... other than my husband's car getting rear-ended on the way home from the fireworks. Did you do anything fun to celebrate?
As you can see above we had a blast with friends and neighbors. My husband has Wednesday through Friday off from work for the 4th of July holiday (thank you Google!) so we have lots of swimming and a few other adventures planned.
I'm taking today off from sharing a new crafty post with you, but hope you'll take a moment to check out a few of these parenting posts by some of my favorite blogs.
For our family, July is a time for connecting with family members and celebrating together! This means we spend a lot of time with one another and occasionally have some problems too.
Here are a few things I'm going to try out this summer to make it more successful:
Make daily connections with your toddler via Famiglia & Seoul
