It is easy to forget certain holidays here in China. With Lucas working for a German company in China he was not given the Fourth off. Not a big deal since we had a big barbeque last weekend and it was going to be just us anyway. I didn't even really think about the up coming holiday until yesterday, without all those loud obnoxious store decorations we all complain about and make fun of it really is easy to forget the holidays. To make it feel a bit more like home I took the kids to the pool for some fun. They had a blast swimming around in the kiddie pool for a good hour or more before I called it quits and headed home to dewrinkle.
