birthday pain

we celebrated Alair's birthday this last weekend and it was awful! We knew she had reservations about turning 5 but never thought it would go so far. Aubrey, Claire and Natalie, Chris, Allison and Evelyn, Louise, Erik and April were here. We all went swimming and then ate lunch. Alair ate her version of a burrito, but would not open gifts or say thankyou and left when everyone sang. I was very angry and embarrassed with her behavior. While there is no excuse for her acting that way, I guess her life is changing alot. She will start school, her sister, brother in law and neice will be moving here, and two exchange students are coming next week. She has never liked being the center of attention so I guess we shouldn't wonder that she acted like that. She still cannot be rude to people. Need to work on that.

I'm trying to get the house ready for the foreigners arrival. We get to go to the airport two days in a row. Oh well.We will be busy and have fun this school year.

This has got to be the hottest summer I can remember. The heat and humidity mixed with hot flashes just doesn't work.I am so glad we have a swimming pool.

We are gradually getting everything ready for Emily and Andy's return and the two foreign girls. Shop thie week, I hope.
