Kirilee and Shiana looking the part in the crowd - this was during the speeches and official opening of the Independence Day celebrations at their school.
Kirilee all dressed up - the costume was a bit itchy!
A teacher dressedup - Highland Region style (Ashlyn thought he was a monster, and though scared kept wanting to see him!)
Then today, actually Independence Day, Shiana went with Andrew for an hour or so, to the nearby stadium to check out the celebrations there. He got some nice pics of that:

Tonight we went at 7pm to the stadium again, this time to see the fireworks! Ashlyn was terrified, and hid in lap the whole time. As we drove home she said, "I thought my might get dead". Aaah, that's why she was so worried, despite our assurances that the fireworks were harmless.
