The 4th of July is getting closer and closer. I keep thinking about the things that define summer for me...fireworks, homemade ice cream, sun, swimming (without getting burnt!!!), sunglasses, braided hair, and grilling (this means my Dad stands out side in the heat doing the grilling...I just enjoy the results), and of course, Texas heat. I love these things (except the EXTREME heat...hello Boston). As July gets closer and closer I am getting more and more excited. I am going home for the first time in a while. I get to watch fireworks and eat yummy food and hopefully not meet any mosquitoes. (at least I don't have to worry about west nile at home...) For those of you staying in CS though, you should go check out the fireworks at the GB Pres. Library!! It is free, and they are BEAUTIFUL. And of course you must make the mandatory homemade ice cream!!
