2. Birthday Cakes on The Internet -- O.K. So the Internet and I have a love/hate relationship. I have been known to slander its name and character on many occasions and I sometimes wish it would just go away entirely. But then one of my kids has a birthday, and I am so very grateful to the people who take the time to post instructions on how to make amazing cakes which make it look like you actually know what you're doing, and are fun to boot. So, thank you, The Internet, for a really cool dragon cake idea that turned out to be a roaring success.
3. Soccer Season -- This is a mixed happy/dread thing, because it means that fall is right around the corner, and I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet. But this week saw us shopping for soccer balls, shin guards, tall socks, and cleats (thank you, Goodwill stores!) for our three athletes. Calum wore his gear almost all day yesterday and all day today, even though he only kicked the ball around for about 5 minutes, and managed to say the words "shin guards" about 47 times. Iain looked at me with a grin and said, "I'm starting to get excited!" And Ana? Well, for Ana, it's all about looking good.
