Laid Back

As anticipated, yesterday was an extremely laid back holiday. We had toyed with the idea of going to the pool for a few hours in the afternoon, but Scott and Timmy ended up taking long naps. It has been a long time since Timmy has taken a nap, so I took the opportunity to get some work done.  It was strange having the house so quiet in the middle of the afternoon, but I was grateful for the ability to concentrate without interruption.  

Robby, my little entrepreneur, decided to take advantage of the holiday traffic through our neighborhood by setting up a lemonade and cookie stand at the entrance to our development. He and his friend Rowan worked their business throughout the afternoon and each pocketed a nice little profit for their efforts. Spurred by their success, the pair are already planning other money making adventures for the summer and fall traffic.  

Having a holiday in the middle of a work week feels anti-climactic and odd. Maybe it is because we didn't do anything celebratory, but it was hard to distinguish that yesterday was anything special. With the exception of the constant bangs and flashes of fireworks through the sky all night, I might have forgotten it was the Fourth of July.
