Happy Birthday to Mama!

Today was my birthday.
My parents sent me these beautiful necklaces made by an adoptive mom of two gorgeous children from Guatemala. You can find her items here.

Mama in Spanish:

Mama in Ahmaric:

Andrew sang: 'Happy Birthday, Mama' to me a few times today. I think it was the highlight of the whole day.

He's very fickle about his singing. This was one of the times when he told me 'no'.

Here he is singing 'Happy Birthday, Mama' and then 'Happy Birthday, Andrew'.

I had to go to work for a while in the morning and had the chance to see my new classroom for next year (we are moving to a different building). Kellie and I are going to miss our school and the wonderful people who work there.

Our work picnic was today at the park right down the street from our house. Andrew had a great time running around in the field, playing with Noah and Joe and talking to all the people I work with.


I love this picture:

Gramma sent Andrew a flippy-flier to play with. He had a great time throwing it around.

Blowing bubbles:

Hanging out with my boss, Paul.

I love the new camera Andrew gave me for my birthday.
The next two pictures were taken at the same time from the same spot. The zoom on this camera is great.
