Thursday and Friday, I went camping with my good friend and his family at a fun Iowa lake; any time spent floating in the sun is a-okay with me! From there, I went to my parents' house for a weekend-long pool party, but not before taking in a small-town parade the morning of the 4th. It was so fun to watch Little Miss hesitantly run after candy, wave at tractors, and wave her little flags :) After a park-side picnic with my grandparents, we headed home to soak up some rays, and we were even lucky enough to see the neighbor's fireworks from the pool.
We capped off the weekend by celebrating my little sister's birthday. I'm en route to NASA to train with my educator group again this week, so keep up with Teacher Talk for all our adventures this week! ...and be patient with my sporadic posts! :)
