Happy Birthday Lynne

Today is birthday day here in our house; Lynne turned another year this morning. Happy Birthday Lynne. We actually celebrated it with the usual presents, cake and candles last Saturday. The girls and myself had baked her favorite cake, a carrot cake but the highlight for the girls was clearly making the icing, mixing the colors just right to yield Mommy’s favorite color, purple. She received a new MacBook Air for her birthday. Lynne and I went out for a very relaxing, quite dinner for two last night which was great.

Hail Purdue

On Friday evening we had the annual Spring Program hosted by the Montessori School. Quite basically, each class stages a song or two for the adoring families looking on. Isabel’s class gave us a rendition of Purdue's fight song, Hail Purdue.

The kids went to the circus this afternoon. The Kelly Miller Circus was in town and Brooke very generously offered to take them (thank you so much). They were so excited this evening at dinner. We had tales of elephants, trapeze artists and of course the clowns. They had a wonderful time.

Jane Ziegler

With great sadness we bid farewell this week to Lorraine’s mother, Jane Ziegler who passed away last Saturday evening, may she rest in peace. She lived a wonderful life, it was only a couple of weeks ago we celebrated her 90th birthday. We did not know her that well but we do know that she will be sadly missed by many friends and dearly remembered by all her family.
