4th of July in Wilmore

Tom brought this hat and poster for Elijah just before we left for the fireworks. Micah and Isaiah stayed home to go to bed, but Elijah fought to stay awake and enjoyed his first firworks show. By 10:30, he was laying on my lap to watch the show, and if you know him at all, you know how infrequently he lays down to do anything. Even though he was tired, he thoroughly enjoyed the fireworks. He says his favorite part was all of the noises. That's a change from last year!

We all played outside with the beach toys we'd purchased at the Dollar Store. No beach in Kentucky but we're getting ready for our trip to Michigan. As you can see, Isaiah enjoyed a mud spa treatment courtesy his brother. He didn't seem to mind, but Micah freaked out about any little splash of dirt that found him.

What's better than a homemade cherry pie for dinner on the 4th of July? We had eaten all afternoon at Tom and Cassie's, so when we got home I made pie and we ate a backward dinner- dessert first (or for some of us, just dessert).

Wilmore Parade- A lovely hometown experience of which the highlight is the lawnmower brigade. It deserves its own post, but here are the other attractions.

Horses- of course.

A lineup of old tractors...

and I'll put more in the next post.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
