Sometimes the holidays do bring people together and the 4th of July was no exception. Jon & Kate plus 8 celebrated the 4th of July setting off fireworks for the first time in weeks without it being on television. Was it being recorded for a later broadcast? Yes, it was.
They said the pending divorce would "focus solely on the needs of our family" and they have stuck to it. It beat the other alternative of Jon not seeing his kids on a holiday. Jon has said before he will see his kids on every holiday, no doubt about it.
As F'd up as this situation is, he is trying to be a true parent. Not just to one, but 8. How many dads can say that? Kudos to Kate as well for not tripping on this.-Dr.FB
