What I did on my birthday

I recently completed another trip around the sun.  I am in favor of more trips as the alternative is not so good.  Anyhow, this birthday, I had the pleasure of hearing Abigail sing in the annual Appalachian Children’s Chorus Christmas concert at the Clay Center here in the city.  Abigail loves music and has been singing lots in preparation for this concert.  It is so cool that she has the opportunity to perform in front of a large crowd in a first-class facility.

Bad pictures protect anonymity, right?

I did enjoy a birthday party at a local restaurant with some of my family several days after my actual birthdate and that was cool of course.  It’s really been a week-long celebration of, well, me!  It’s ok though, I am worth it!

Girl climbing a tree! Girl climbing a tree!

So, anyhow, back to the concert.  Abigail is a part of another musical group which performs Wednesday night as well.  None of us knows the songs she’ll be performing or how this concert will proceed.  It’s like a surprise present!  Birthday presents when you are a kid are cool, but I think I get this adult thing a little now…the best gift is hanging with the kids and seeing them doing things they love! I still think I mostly think about things as if I were a 14 year old, but every now and then, I get to be an adult and it’s pretty cool!

  1. Happy Birthday, belatedly, but still congrats on another year. Yes sometimes it sucks to realize that you are getting older, but look at what you reflect upon and seeing that your children are worth it. Now get out there and climb that tree with your daughter.
