I am so overwhelmed and touched by all of the well-wishes from friends and family near and far for my birthday this past Tuesday. It really makes me feel like I’ve celebrated with you all. I had such a great day, and the fun continues this weekend as my stepmother and my brother and his girlfriend arrived today. We’ll have dinner at a top-notch restaurant, go gallivanting at the Boulder Creek festival, have a big BBQ at our house on Sunday, and cap off the fun with the Bolder Boulder 10k on Monday. Not too bad, I have to say.
My kids both finished school this week too. Today Jay “graduated” from preschool in a sweet little ceremony. Between the two kids, we’ve spent 6 years at that school, so it was very bittersweet saying goodbye. The teachers and staff have been like family and have loved and taken such wonderful care of our children. These transitions are difficult for us parents as we helplessly watch our children grow up too fast. BUT, we’re all excited for the next era in Jay’s life – elementary school.
We’re also excited for our summer adventures, and in general, everything just feels great right now. I haven’t been getting much writing done, but I know that time will return. For now, I am my life, my family and my friends. I can’t ask for much more than that.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend to my U.S. friends. May your barbeques be sunny and your flowers be blooming…Categories: Birthdays, Family, Friendship · Tags: 40th Birthday, Birthdays, Bolder Boulder, Family, Friends, Holidays, Memorial Day
