Sorry this is sideways!
My surprise at finding Ellie turning 5 was nothing compared to waking up on July 20th to realize I was 38! How did I get to be that old. I remember Birthdays past that were full of beach days and frozen concoctions and couldn’t imagine how I could spend this my 38th birthday.
It was wonderful, still full of beach time and a cool one but with the added bonus of a wonderful hubby and my two sweet girls. What more could a 38 year old ask for from a Birthday?
I turned around and had a 5 year old. How’d that happen. Not too sure but I do know it was a great celebration. We had everyone meet at the town Green and we had rain, pizza, cupcakes and music – provided by a concert by Dane Zanes and friends.
Even with the sprinkles it was wonderful.
We had the annual Little Hearts Picnic in June. It is a chance to meet up with other parents and children with heart defects once a year. It is so wonderful to see how the kids have gotten on since the last year but also gives us a chance to talk to other parents who understand.
For Ellie it is just loads of fun!
We made a trip down to Virginia in June, the girls and I, while Ken went off to Guamala to visit Lee.
Sorry once again it has been so long. I have gotten my transfer to International so I am now back flying the flying I love and spending all of my work time in Europe and the UK. YAY!! I feel like time is simply flying by me these days.
