Some people complain about having to drive to four different places for thanksgiving or Christmas or blah, blah, blah...let me tell you about my Independence Day. First off, it's not just a one day event. It usually lasts three, and can last as long as five. Heaven help me if I can't get off work for all of them, either. In our house, Independence Day is like a high-school reunion, college frat party, documentary about locations in the Saint Louis metro area, and family reunion wrapped up with parades, topped with a carnival and then set on fire and blown up.
It is pretty cool, though, hearing Abby say "Oooooh...fireworks!"
I started keeping track of my life with the girls in 2009, in a series of illustrated status updates called "Daily Life"...As I finish up collecting some of these stories for print books, and catch up on some freelance work, I thought it would be a good time to post some of these older stories, so that everything is collected here on the blog. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. :)
