Our Fourth 4th

It's a little surreal to think it's the 4th time we've celebrated America's Indpeendence Day on international soil.  Every year we've managed to find some sparklers and Ryleigh has gotten so excited about all the "fireworks" which this year even included bottle rockets!

For the past 3 years, we've been able to see fireworks the week before during Madagascar's Independence Day - so the girls have seen an actual firework display but I get the feeling that this New Years Eve they're going to be in for quite the surprise.

Grateful for the opportunity to celebrate and for all of the men & women who have given their lives so that it's possible to celebrate.  While it's not currently in our calendar to be in the States for the 4th anytime soon, we do have fun celebrating with our mission family.  Yesterday was filled with a trip to the beach, a patriotic movie, yard games, fireworks, American hotdogs, traditional sides, and lots of fun with friends.

Here's a look at all 4 of our 4th since arriving on the field...
