Yesterday was my Christian's birthday--15 years old and I can hardly believe it. We had so much fun and we were so busy that he was opening presents at midnight with me chiding him to hurry and get on to bed. But today, I am feeling sort of blue. He is my baby and he is growing up too quickly. I hate that he's 15 and pestering me to take him to get his driver's permit. Peter was 4 when I found out that I was pregnant with Christian, and I remember wondering how I would ever love another child as much as I loved Peter. Well, everyone else knows the answer to that one. Christian is definitely a child who keeps us hopping. A little like Teri in that there is usually a big plan or a crisis. But always a lot of fun. He had decided long ago what he wanted to do for his birthday. We have a brand new train which is going from
It is a huge thing for us and very exciting. Bob took it to work yesterday and I hope that he will do it often. And for any of you coming to Salt Lake and not wanting to rent a car, we are such a pleasant and easy shot on the Frontrunner. If you were staying in downtown Salt Lake, it is a quick ride on the public transit to the train and a fun ride to Ogden. We are an easy 2 block walk from the station. It is going to be great.
OK--here it is Thursday, and I have yet to finish this. So I am going to send it off and move on. Next week we have some fun new things coming that are just being finished. 2 new Baubles. The retreat is overflowing and Teri and I are very excited. We spent all last weekend working on a project for it and it is very fun. You will all flip--well if you are coming to the retreat that is. Have a great week, plenty of calm and lots of accomplishments. That is also what I hope for myself. I think I am chaperoning a band trip tomorrow evening and I am too scared to call and find out.
