It's "R's" last birthday in Argentina. I thought about him all day on Friday...
I had a little lump in my throat when I remembered how he would call me when he was walking up to campus to go to class and in my head I could hear his voice.
It's hard for me to even imagine the reality of seeing him in just a little over 2 months, but I remember feeling the same way with "S" and thinking that the day would never really come. But it did...and it was glorious!
I love you, big man. Happy 21st birthday. See you in 2 months.
In our house when we talk about March madness it's not entirely about basketball...we have three birthdays this month that are one right after the other. Don't get me wrong, it's always tons of fun...but it can be a little hectic. We have a few birthday traditions that I always enjoy: the birthday celebratee gets to choose their favorite birthday dinner and during dinner we play "how well do you know...(birthday person)". It is always good for some huge laughs. Today is "P's" birthday and one of the questions was what was "P's" most embarrassing moment. We all gave a variety of guesses, but her answer was "this very moment". I'm pretty sure it had to do with the presence of a certain young man who she was hoping wouldn't hear about her repertoire of embarrassing moments. haha.
In addition to the birthday festivities we've had church activites, school dances and just a lot of other fun.
Next week, we're heading to Disneyland....that will undoubtedly have some blog-worthy moments. Can't wait!!
