Why is the after of a special event even more work than the before? Maybe because it's easier to pull things together than to put them back. We've spent the week restoring the Nature Center to "normal," in the midst of float prep, accounting, one summer camp session, and considerable weariness. But we're back . . .
Today is the 4th of July. Our flag is flying here at home and in our hearts. Soon, the family will head to St. Luke's Presbyterian Church to staff the water table during the Dunwoody Parade, keeping 100+ entries hydrated as they wind down Mt. Vernon Road to the Village. Tonight is fireworks in Chamblee's Keswick Park, the most awesome, old-fashioned celebration we've enjoyed since moving to Atlanta.
God bless America and thank you, thank you, thank you to our amazing people in uniform stationed here and abroad.
