"...I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air..."

4th of July
This year on the 4th we actually went to view fireworks for the first time since Will was born. Last year we could see some from our house and he was still frightened by the noise. This year we went to a parade and the fireworks and Will enjoyed both.
We did give him ear protection during the fireworks, which made it significantly more enjoyable for him. :)
I also did a bit of experimenting with shooting fireworks this year, and was happy with some of the results (for my first time at least). :)
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. I COR 9: 24-27
