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.
