My dad's 61st birthday...


Today is my dad's birthday...we celebrated by going to Graeter's to get some ice cream yesterday. While there, I saw a table with books Notes Left Behind and read of a Cincinnati family who lost their 6 year old to cancer...how devastating...but Graeter's had a scrumptious flavor of ice cream named after her, Elena's blueberry pie!
Hannah and Olivia taking off their ghillies...they resumed Irish dancing classes this week, which I thoroughly enjoy watching. Olivia was reluctant to go back. Hannah was so excited. We forced Olivia to go, because she tends to not try things, but when she does she usually is happy...and after class she said "That was so much fun!" I guess she forgot how much she liked it.
A walk in the drizzle. We hunted for silver maple leaves and sugar maple leaves, found some oak leaves and tried identifying others and got a pretty brown and green acorn. It's been gray practically all week. See the girls with their umbrellas?P.S. On a sad note...our bunny, Snowball died. We buried her in our backyard. I'm so glad we still have one pet, Lusy. I love animals. The heartbreak when you lose anyone you care about is difficult to deal with...
