For our family, this is also known as Drew's birthday weekend. He was born on the 6th, and will be 6 on Monday.
Because of my mother-in-law's recuperation, we have a variety of activities this weekend. We are going out to their house for lunch today so that Drew can see his grandparents for his birthday. My MIL just isn't quite up to the trip yet.
Tomorrow, my sister and her family will come over here to celebrate. Mary and John are Drew's Godparents, and he loves every moment he can spend with them. I have a lot to do between now and then, including getting the house ready and picking up food for my in-laws and for here tomorrow. Wish me luck!
The 4th is an odd holiday for me because I start to feel like summer is half over (really it's not). This year in particular, I am feeling kind of stressed about getting things together for the boys to go back to school. Not knowing whether the baby is coming before or after they are in school makes me feel like I need to have everything ready early. Also, there is this little problem with Michael, who will be 4 in September, refusing to potty train. He totally gets it, and is really refusing to do it. I need to pray for the best way to get this done.
Anyway, everyone have a great 4th!
