Last Thursday was a glorious, almost summer like day and it happened to be Ellie's 17th birthday as well. It was a school day, so I left flowers for Ellie. She would find them on the breakfast table after I had gone to work. When I told my students that it was my daughter's birthday many of them were aghast as they thought I should have taken the day off to spend with my daughter. They were further amazed when I told them that she went to school. They seem to agree that I should have stayed home and taken her to Chucke Cheese's for the day.
The actual celebration of her birthday took place on Saturday.
Here are some videos that we have been enjoying:

And just in case you are in the mood for a sing-along tonight (or dancing along as Ellie and Kohlton were moved to do):
