This Fourth of July was celebrated at our good friends the Gooch's! It was so fun to see all our friends together and their kids running around. They sure had fun lighing off fireworks all night long. Poor Isaac and Carter got burned from the sparklers. I never knew how dangerous they could be when Isaac has one in his hand!
Cali has been taking ballet this summer with her friend Bella and has been loving it! She loves showing me each dance position and how the teacher tells her to point the bug and squish the bug. She just looks so cute dancing through the window and consentrates so hard at doing what the teacher says to do.
Cali told me today that she wishes I were more of a sister than a mother. I was hoping that what she meant was that she wished I would play with her more, rather than tell her what to do and what not to do all the time. I guess? I just love that she still tells me everything that is on her mind. I hope we can always be close!
“The greatest battle of life is fought out within the silent chambers of the soul. A victory on the inside of a man’s heart is worth a hundred conquests on the battlefields of life. To be master of yourself is the best guarantee that you will be master of the situation. Know thyself. The crown of character is self-control.” 3
