Miss P technically doesn't turn 8 for a few more weeks, but we traditionally host her b-day bash in early (or mid) August before we are crazed with teaching. This year, between the new dog and house stuff, I just wasn't feeling it. Could we just do a fun outing instead?
No. A party was requested. So a (small) party we had. We got a few school friends together for a swim soiree at the pool.
Ed and I demo a game. 'Awkward!' Paige can't stand to watch.
So (at first), I didn't want to have a party. But aren't the smiles always worth it?
