There’s nothing like spending the Fourth of July with family and friends. It’s the ultimate summer day. Every Fourth, my mom’s side of the family has an annual fish fry. Nearly all of my family lives in the same subdivision, but I am the exception. We have a very large family, and my grandparents, my mom and stepdad, my two aunts and uncle, and all their families live within about a one-block radius of one another. People jokingly call it the “Rohrbach Compound.” My mom lives on a lake, and, throughout the year, my cousins, uncle, and grandpa fish the lake. Grandpa takes the fish and cleans them with the same old knife he has used since I was a kid. Then, he freezes them until the holiday. Come the Fourth, my entire family gathers at my Uncle Scotty and Aunt Missy’s house for food and fun. There’s cornhole, whiffle ball, kickball, and all kinds of tournament games. We are a very competitive family, as you might have guessed! Of course, it’s not all games. There are also horse and pony rides, as my grandpa lives on a farm. Then, once we’re all gathered at the house, my uncle and grandpa batter and fry a whole lot of fish! After the fish comes the dessert, which, I will admit, is my favorite part. Grandpa makes homemade ice cream with one of those old hand-cranked ice cream makers. Vanilla is usually the flavor of choice, but as my young cousins get older, they’ve managed to convince Grandpa to experiment with a few different flavors. But what would the Fourth be without fireworks? Traditionally, one or two family members will be in charge of buying fireworks. Then, at the end of the night after all the food, we’ll sit near Uncle Scotty’s barn and watch the fireworks light off.
Over the last 15 years or so, we’ve even started up a newer family tradition! You know those Old Navy flag shirts? Well, each branch of the family will wear a different color shirt, and then we’ll all gather to take a group picture. Every year we complain about having to get those shirts, but really, we wouldn’t change it for the world! At the end of the day, I consider myself fortunate that so much of my family lives as close as they do.Throughout the year, we have many get-togethers and traditions, including Christmas Eve, and our annual vacation at Golf Shores, Alabama, but nothing can beat a Rohrbach Fourth of July fish fry!
From all of us here, we hope you had a great Fourth of July, and we hope you’re having a wonderful summer.
Our referrals continue to be one of the best ways clients find us, and we deeply appreciate it! for your trust and confidence. Thank you

Silencing your phone during dinner, a party, or quality time with family is the polite thing to do. During National Cellphone Courtesy Month, it’s a good idea to reexamine cellphone etiquette and discover a few ways you can be more courteous to others. Keep It Quiet Whenever you find yourself in a place of worship, talking with others, or enjoying an event, silencing your cellphone is the most courteous thing you can do. A phone that is frequently ringing can be distracting for you and those around you. If you’re expecting an important call you don’t want to miss, turn on vibrate mode. Stop Checking Don’t continuously glance at your phone during meetings, dinner dates, or any time you’re with others. This action shows your disinterest in what
they’re saying and in what’s going on around you. Keeping your phone in your back pocket, in your purse, at your desk, or in your car will help you focus on what’s in front of you. Practice Self-Awareness If you receive a call while in public, be aware of the volume of your phone and voice. Move yourself to a less crowded area to speak freely, especially if you know the conversation might get heated. When you take a call, it’s good practice to leave some space between you and others. You don’t want to distract anyone with raised voices or gestures while you’re on your call. Politely Excuse Yourself If you must take a call, answer a text, or send an email, be sure to excuse yourself from the people around you and check your phone in a more private area. Simply saying, “I’m sorry, but I need to take this.
I’ll be back in a few minutes,” gives everyone a sense of what’s going on while remaining respectful.
By following these four tips, you’ll be prepared for the next time you’re on a date, in a business meeting, or watching a movie in a sold-out theater.

3 Free Apps to Help You Catch Those Z’s
Insomniacs Unite 3 Free Apps to Help You Catch Those Z’s Everyone with a smartphone has heard time and time again that looking at your phone before bed is a bad idea. According to the National Sleep Foundation, “The use of electronic devices in the bedroom further disrupts the natural pattern of the sleep-wake cycle” primarily because of the blue light emitted from the screen. While most scientific data pertaining to sleep recommends you place your phone in another room overnight, those who toss and turn regardless of phone location might benefit from using technology rather than tucking it away. Here are three FREE sleep apps that might help you get to dreamland faster. Pzizz While there are many apps that claim to help people fall asleep quickly, very few are programmed to prevent sleepers from growing bored of the same monotonous soundtracks. Pzizz combines music, sound effects, and binaural beats, and an embedded algorithm generates a slightly different track each time you use it. Snore Report Many troubled sleepers who are able to fall asleep are jolted awake shortly afterward. The inability to stay asleep throughout the night can stem from a
multitude of factors, but snoring tends to be the most common. The Snore Report app records through the night to detect any snoring sounds and then provides the user with an overview of the previous night’s recording, including an index to determine snore intensity. Using this app might not help you fall asleep faster, but it could offer helpful information about why you aren’t able to stay asleep. Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock Instead of setting an alarm to jolt yourself out of sleep at a specific time, choose a window of time to wake up with the Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock. The app will sense your sleep movements and ring an alarm when you’re in the lightest stage of sleep. This way, you’ll wake at the optimal time, feeling refreshed rather than groggy.
