Today is Nick’s – Mr. Ayres’ – twenty-fourth birthday. Rowen and I gave him a gift this morning before classes; mostly because we wouldn’t be seeing him for dinner and a movie night. For some reason, Aunt Deborah had decided that taking Nick to the city for dinner and a show for two would be more fun than hanging out with her cousins, friends, and four kids at our house. I wonder why?
We had a good day at school, but Rowen and I were ready for a fun night that started shortly after we finished our homework. We had another walk and park play with Ethan and Ehlana before dinner, and then had fun with Mom, Dad, Uncle Adam, and Aunt Leanne during dinner. Tonight’s movie was Spooky Buddies, and then we had a telepathic chat and bedtime story and snack in the living room while Mom nursed the twins.Rowen and I were sent upstairs after that; mostly because we’re taking the three o’clock feeding again. Uncle Adam and Aunt Leanne were staying until after midnight, and the two couples settled in to watch another movie; each of them getting a baby to cuddle with. While I’m doing this and an email check, Rowen’s borrowing my Jacuzzi, and Mandy is sitting in the window alcove while we all chat telepathically. I don’t really have anything else to write about tonight – the big news day this weekend will likely be Mom and Dad’s anniversary on Sunday; since tomorrow is yard work day. That does feel a bit strange, considering how big this Friday night and Saturday were last year, but I’d say we’ve still managed to end September with a really great day.
