Star Wars Birthday Party

August 8, 2016 in misc. - 1 Comment

My baby, Matthew, turned 6 a few weeks ago and insisted on having a Star Wars themed birthday party.  And when I say insisted, it was all he could talk about.  His only restriction: “No Princess Leia!”  This, or course, hurt Grace’s feelings, because that’s the only character she likes….

This month is literally flying by! I can’t believe that Spring Break is right around the corner.  This means spring is almost here.  This also means my maternity leave ends.  Which is sad for all.  But, it will be nice to get back to work, see my students, and think academically again.  When…
