What do you do when you’re out of the country during a national holiday? You gather a bunch of Americans and celebrate anyway! We were sad to miss a big block party this morning for all Americans here in San Jose (we had to go to class 🙁 ), pilule but we enjoyed ourselves this evening at the school. We had a big cookout with hotdogs, remedy chicken and steak. The kids demolished a pinata and played in the park. With patriotic songs blaring we watched a homemade fireworks show. It wasn’t necessarily your big city type of show, but it was equally satisfying – a small taste of home! I hope everyone out there had an awesome 4th! We’re missing Old Navy t-shirts, Stone Mountain, Mackinac Island and so much more. Love you all!!
