It’s the 4th of July!! Our niece and nephew arrived on the ferry from England last night, and we are taking them to see the D-Day sites today. The best sort of July 4th outing.

I hope you’re enjoying the day with friends and family. I wish you BBQs and Fireworks and Parades! Yay for America!!

America! America!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self control,
Thy liberty in law.

— from America the Beautiful

P.S. — Our first 4th of July in France was spent at the D-Day beaches, too. Since that day, we’ve been back over 20 times. It’s strange to think today may be our last visit.
