The following is a conversation that I had with Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby last night.
Have a safe & happy 4th of July to all the US folks who celebrate.
(Have a safe & happy July 4th to everyone else.)
Over the next three days the plan is to head to the beach, pack picnics, see live music, eat snow cones, go to a pool party and watch two firework displays. And do a red, white and blue craft project. Or seven. And bake cookies. And a pie. And make ice cream. And go to the library and check out books for the kids about the 4th. And travel across the country to see the Declaration of Independence in person. And enter a national hot dog eating contest. And sew the whole family matching patriotic outfits.
Actually, as long as we see some fireworks and eat something frozen we’re good.
How do you celebrate?
Also, thank you so much for all your excitement and kind words about my book news last week, your comments absolutely made my weekend! Most of your questions (like exactly when you can pre-order, book tours, international availability) are ones that I don’t have answers to yet. But I’ll let you know more in the coming months. Thank you!
