Thanks, Katie, for this challenge. I know I'm too late to enter. Took me a while to work through what I wanted to do.

Journaling reads:
We didn’t really do anything special for the Fourth of July. We haven’t discovered our traditions yet, I think. Victoria is sensitive to loud noices and doesn’t really like crowds. That rules out parades and fireworks for right now.

So this year we celebrated by decorating around the house. We hung an American flag from our garden flag pole. And planted US flags on sticks along the plant beds outside the front door.

We spent the day at home, together, playing hopscotch and blowing bubbles. Just happy to be together on the holiday.

Happy Birthday, America!
