"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime."

--Adlai E. Stevenson

So being obsessed with fireworks (or bored with them after the first two minutes--Eliza) doesn't count? I really liked the balloon fest. It sure was hard to explain who "founding fathers" are to Sage. I need to recommit, hot air balloons or not.

This quote was up in the bathroom for like 5 years. I like it :) Way to be patriotic. (Aren't you glad I read your blog?)

i admit, the first thing i thought of when i read that was that it used to be in the downstairs bathroom, but good reminder.

Very nice. And not fair! I diligently check your blog for weeks and am out of town for three days and then you write like five posts! Loved them though :) Go you domestic goddess, you!
