I was asked a few times, “So what do you guys do for the 4th?”
Any kind of question like that right now is just impossible.
I don’t know.
I don’t want to do traditions any longer. There’s a key player that’s missing right now. How can we be happy doing the same thing we usually do?
But how do I also keep some normalcy for the boys?
That’s my tightrope walk.
Yesterday we grilled.
We hung out with my parents and new friends.
Set off small fireworks.
And we bought a new van. (Pictures coming soon!)
Mixed with old traditions.
And I had no full blown panic attack yesterday.
I consider that a success.
