Claire Banschbach ~ One of my favorite books about the Revolutionary War actually takes place in England. But I still go back and read it occasionally because I love the character “Reb” and getting glimpses of what America was like at that time.
Aubrey Hansen ~ Me ‘n my pit bull would like to wish y’all a right fine Fourth o’ July!
Sarah Brazytis ~
Morgan Huneke ~ Campaigning for Congressman Barry Loudermilk at the Independence Day parade is always a great way to celebrate freedom.
Jenelle Schmidt ~ We spend the day outside: bike rides, playing soccer or frisbee, a picnic, all of these may be on the itinerary. Growing up, 4th of July always meant going to a Kane County Cougars — our Single-A ball-team — evening game followed by fireworks. Our kids are a little young for staying up that late, so we usually buy some small “fountain style” fireworks and sparklers and set ‘em off in the cul-de-sac. It’s a day spent being a family and thanking God for the blessing of living in a place where we can worship Him freely.
