First of all, it was Ethan's eleventh birthday. Cannot believe my kid is eleven.
Second, went to AJ's talent show, where he and several other kiddos did a lip synch and dance to 'Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better,' from Annie Get Your Gun. I'm his mom, but it's pretty cute.( the videos... cut to save your page... )
It's in two parts because I absolutely suck at videotaping.
Three, I cooked all day for home group, but then I got a call mid afternoon from Nolan asking me if everything was okay. Turns out, there was a fire less than a mile from the house. It was a scary, smoky, crazy afternoon.
Fourth, the powers that be decided that they couldn't have home group meet at our house (there were streets blockaded and neighborhoods evacuated) so I decided that was divine providence, and we took Ethan to dinner for his birthday, and then went to Academy and got him a new bike.
Eleven. I have an eleven year-old. The mind reels.
and I did out first marriage blog. We're still working out format and technical stuff, but it's there
. Special kudos to jandjsalmon

And that's probably enough to be getting on with, right? Goodnight!
