From Kansas, the Bontragers are....

....wishing ya'll a beautiful and blessed celebration of 
this July 4th!
I could really write a book, because I am so passionate about freedom and honoring those who gave their lives for our liberty...but instead I will simply quote this amazing verse that my sister sang tonight from our national anthem:
"Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto:
"In God is our trust"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"
{random: check out those three handsome giants that now tower above their sisters :)}
