Happy Birthday to Me

This is so sad. Here I am letting people know it's my birthday today and the truth is that I forgot about it myself for most of the day. Anyhow, I'm 35 now and happy to be that age.

Regardless of my forgetting about my birthday I still had an amazing day. Rebecca from Chop Wood, Carry Water and I hooked up at a local wildlife park to meet and let our Hobbit-loving daughters get to know each other. As I pulled in I noticed half a dozen vehicles pulling in and unloading. All moms with kids ranging from babies to teenagers.

It couldn't be.

It was! A group of homeschoolers from the city was having a day at the park as well! They invited us to join them and we all had a wonderful time wandering around the park at our own speed. It gets better since it turns out one of the employees was also a homeschooling mom.

It was like stepping out of the real world into an alternate and infinitely cooler universe.

I had a fantastic time, had a lot of great laughs with Rebecca and Catherine couldn't stop talking about her daughters and how great they were.

A great way to spend a birthday.

Happy Birthday Dawn!! I hope you had a great day. Thirty-five is a great age. The problem is, you won't get those cute crows feet for years to come. :-)

Happy Birthday. My oldest son's is today (Oct. 1) - he's 7. I'm 35 myself. :-)

Thank you for the compliment about my articles. Please visit and check out the other articles I have to offer. Some are here, the rest are listed by category under blog on my sitemap.

Sharing my articles with homeschoolers just makes a lot of sense, as home school families often need outside assistance from experts in areas like music.

Again, happy birthday.

Thank you everyone! A friend brought me over a box of chocolates for my birthday today and I'd share some with you all to celebrate but...It's chocolate. It's all mine. You can't have it. :D
