Yesterday was a day of rest and reflection at the Horton home. After traveling most of the month of June it was nice to stay at home and enjoy our time together. Last night our church sponsored a 4th of July family picnic with games, a dunking booth, bounce house, and fireworks! It was so much fun! Ethan did enjoy the fireworks after the first three booms. After a couple minutes of figuring out that everything was ok, he just looked up to the sky in awe. How precious it was to see him safe in his Daddy's arms enjoying the show.
We are very thankful to our service men and women who put their lives on the line every day so that we can enjoy many freedoms. Kaitlyn, one of our girls at church, has been in my thoughts frequently this week as I think about freedom. To her family, the cost is very expensive. He daddy is serving in Iraq and this is his fifth tour. Please, keep the Paige family in your prayers as well as all of our heroes who sacrifice precious family time so that we can enjoy ours.
