So for my fourth of July I spent the day at home with the family I'm living with for the next several months. This included lots of reading stories and playing board games. In the evening we went to a cook out, and then I went to meet some friends to watch fireworks. As I was driving I realized that next year I won't be celebrating the Fourth of July in America. It was kind of strange to think about, and it made me want to enjoy the night even more. So despite the fact that it was raining, I sang along with all of the patriotic and "American" songs playing on the radio, ooohhed and aahhhed at the fireworks, and kept trying to guess which display was the finale. It was a good night, even if it was wet and chilly.
