We kept it low key this year, a few sparklers and fireworks at the farm where we thought we would be escaping the majority of the noise (that was not the case). Lately, Charlotte has been really frightened of noises outside…especially loud ones. We spent the day bowling and at the arcade to celebrate Charlotte. I think she has made it to the other side of all these difficult transitions with maturity. No longer going to school, getting a new sister, going on vacation, and spending her summer sharing her home, toys, sister, and mom with several other kids is a lot for a 3 year old. I’m proud of the way she has grown up through it all.
