I was listening to Morning Edition on NPR this morning and they mentioned that it is Barak Obama's Birthday tommorow. Well guess who else has a birthday tommorow....Yes, me. So I share a birthday with someone famous. Other notable events that occured on August 4th...Mozart got married (happy anniversery Mozart, what is this 312 years or something? Good thing he's a genius). Also on the European front, in 1914 World War 1 began on August 4th and in 1990 when I was recovering from my post 21st B-Day hangover, I learned that Iraq invaded Kuwait.
I looked up Barak Obama on Wikipedia and he was born in 1961 and I was born in 1969, so we are like 1960's bookends.
People have often commented on my decisive, natural leadership style (or that I am kind of bossy and have a strong sense of how the world shoud run) I guess we who were born on August 4th are just natural leaders.
Christian went a friend's birthday party at a local pool today. I rode the bike there with Christian in tow. A bit over 10 miles round trip. He had fun in the pool with his friends and since it was a private party, I could just hang on the side and visit with the other moms while he swam.
I did two layouts from Lindsay Jane Designs today
The first one is from her August Grab Bag. Just $3.00 and you get a ton of great stuff through August 8th. I used things from every item in the bag for this layout.
I used Soccer Inc. for this layout.
We are off to go camping on the Oregon Coast first thing in the morning. The car is all packed and we just have to fill the cooler, grab toiletries and bedding and oh yeah, the kids. I had to assure Christian that we would get them up and to the car in the morning and that he did not need to wake up early and help us remember.
