Denial Ain't Just a River in Egypt

Here I am! I have been here all along, trying to keep my head above water. Figurative water, not real water. That would just be silly since Colorado is void of any big body of water.

Last week we had our marathon of work meetings. All of the directors from around the world congregated in the office for a week. We hashed out everything: conference planning (I head to India in October!), terrorism, evacuations, communications, finances and organizational impact. It was exhausting and productive and beneficial and exhausting.

On top of all of that, something else happened last week. I almost can't form the words to say it. I kind of want to pretend it never happened.

And no, I did not fall into a fountain again.

Are you ready for this?

This baby turned 6.


And he likes to play with toy cars, kick soccer balls, run through the sprinklers, race around the yard and climb in trees.

He does not like to be swaddled in a blanket and smothered in kisses by his crazy aunt.

And to top it all off, he has lost two teeth.

I may have to tape them back in.


  1. That's like the best picture ever! How delicious does he look??? Love it - and hope he had a great birthday!

    And I hope you ate some cake for me...

  2. Woah. That is the face of an angel right there. He is so cute!! Can't believe he is 6!

    Or use superglue.

    If we can get him to hold still long enough. :)
