I turned 38 this week.
I've been a mother for over 1/4 of it,
and the same again running an art school.
I've danced for most of it,
have lived here for almost 1/3 of it,
and went to school for longer than I like to remember.
I've been homeschooling my son for almost 3 years.
When I turned 37 last year, I had recently gained 20 pounds after quitting smoking and dancing (from bad knees). Today, with a head-full of grays, I have my knees back, I lost the 20lbs, feel great, and am dancing again. But I'll talk more about all of that in a soon-to-come post about how life is changing, I'm teaching more classes, and Lu will be in charge of most of his learning.
Now, back to my birthday!
Lu made me a lovely sweater/purse hanger.
He spent an hour squeezing oranges to make me juice,
and then another making crepes.
We took a picnic and Cha to the lake.
This was a great thing as he can rarely take a day off.
Here are his feet -
A lakefront restaurant serves my favorite -
key lime pie and cappuccino.
Brownie a la mode for the boys.
And there was a ping-pong table!
And, even after drinking half a bottle of champagne in the morning,
I taught a dance class in the afternoon.
Lu's in the back there somewhere too.
We're such a productive family :winkwink:.
You see, even on a birthday/day-off
we managed carpentry, cooking, phys. ed., and dance!
