"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Happy Birthday!!

Alina is the big 5 today! She jumped out of bed this morning and hollered 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!'
This year, she gets it. :) She knows she is 5 and that today is a special day. She was excited to bring treats to school to share with her friends, and promptly told the bus driver when getting on the bus that its her birthday and she was 5. :)

Happy Birthday, Alina!
