It's looking good!

I'm starting to get excited for mom, dad, and Elizabeth. Today's launch is still a go. Latest update from the NASA site:

Tanking BeginsThe loading of Discovery's orange external tank with 500,000 gallons of liquid oxygen and hydrogen began at 4:32 a.m. EDT today. The "topping off" of propellants into the tank will continue until Discovery's launch. All systems onboard the space shuttle are functioning normally and are ready for launch. Currently, there is a 80 percent chance of favorable launch weather for Today. If the weather cooperates this will be the first Independence Day launch of a space shuttle!
