Driving across our great country for ten days has been a great way to appreciate the beauty and variety that is our United States of America.
If you are not from the United States, please forgive me for today, while I wax eloquent.
We left California expecting beautiful national parks and great highways, and we were not disappointed. A complete lack of internet service and very little cell coverage from California to Iowa helped put into perspective those things which are most important. It also made my teenagers a tiny bit crazy.
Here we are in the final days of our trip, and I find myself wishing for just one more day in the cabin near buffalo. Our July 4th celebration will be especially poignant this year, and I will never listen to America the Beautiful quite the same way again.
As you celebrate July 4th, consider having your children write down a few precious memories of the day on these sweet July 4th printables.
