Ok, that last post was kind of a downer.
The kids' birthdays were so fun. Chris, Eloise and I sloshed through the rain and rising tides to take cookies to Isaac's preschool class! He hides when we sing him happy birthday---"I don't want everyone looking at me!" But he recovered as soon as Eloise laid into her cookie at the table. He lost his embarrassment, pulled up a chair beside her and insisted she join the circle for their goodbye song. An adoring brother and devoted host.
