This past week we had a great opportunity to go to the beach with friends. Most people celebrate July 4th, as we do. But we actually celebrate July 5th even more. That is the anniversary of an accident that caused some major damage to my youngest son, John. To honor his survival, we have Life Day.
You will notice that we are eating push pops. Push Pops were the first thing that John could eat after the accident. Push Pops don't seem like such a great food for celebration - but it was the first thing John ate after 3 months of not being able to eat! So, for us, Push Pops mean the world.
He's actually getting his braces off as well this week, after 5 years. A week of milestones!
