As we were packing up, I found a ladybug and shared it with Channing for just a minute or two. He was delighted to see his 'little friend' and promised to return soon for more play.
Walt, Kath & Joe joined us in the evening. After dinner, we gathered on the driveway to enjoy s'mores, sparklers & an assortment of fireworks.
Channing made sure glow sticks were passed out to all in attendance.
He took great pleasure in lighting sparkler after sparkler, going through no less than four boxes all by himself.
The day passed exactly as I wanted it to, in the company of family. Surgery the next day was looming over me. All the business was just the distraction I needed.
