Fourth of July Festivities

This year's celebration of America's Independence and Foundation was celebrated without sparklers, but with much tradition in American food, much patriotism in song and parade, and much joy in friendship! We traveled to Fort Portal, 3 hours by dirt road, to celebrate with other Americans. And what a great day it was!
Early Morning Johnson Family Parade to WeeSing America Songs
Patton draws "fire that comes from a canon" for the parade.
Lilli's creativity by using what we have amazes me. She secretly worked on this flag in order to create the parade.
Aidan has been sick, refusing all foods except bananas. Thankfully, there is an abundance of bananas here!
Quite a parade!
