We have a 9 year old in the house!
Scarlet went and turned 9 the other day. I know this will sound like every other gushing father, but I just can’t believe how fast they are growing up. I never would have thought that having kids would happen so fast, and then accelerate.
Somehow we have started having two cakes at birthday parties. One is the child’s choice, from our local baker, and the other with the kids picture on it, my mother brings. After M’s birthday in September, I’ll be talking with Nita about whether we really need that second cake.
We had a great time at the Seattle GreenFestival last weekend. We talked to lots of folks about our product line, Natural Look Mineral Makeup™. I wish we had taken this retail trade show more seriously last year and in 2008. Apparently attendance was down this year, but there were still lots of people that were very interested. There were lots of great products on display. Automobiles, solar power, fair trade items from all over the world, clothing and of course, our mineral makeup.
While I was getting the yard ready for S’s birthday party, I threw my back out. Ended up communing with the lawn for about 15 minutes before a neighbor heard me calling. Perfect neighbor Ed, found me and helped me get to the house. Then my other perfect neighbor, Dennis, came down to finish mowing our lawn so it would be cut for the party. I’m in debt, I know.
