Matt, I believe, is planning to spend this important and auspicious day working. It seems to be one of those years where all our birthdays fall on inconvenient work days. However, his oldest child has learned to play 'Here we go, up the road, to a birthday party' on the piano for him, so that should be Very Exciting.
Also, my dad is traveling back to Africa today and we would very much appreciate prayers for his safe travel. He'll be on three separate airplanes.
I am about to slowly and carefully rise from this spot and pack our lunch for school today. I was up most of the night feeling laborish. I am very thankful that its eased off but I'm intending to move very slowly today and try to keep everything in place.
