Yesterday I mailed out the invitations to Jake’s birthday party. While in one way it is nice to have a summer birthday, there is also the risk of everyone being away on party day, especially when the birthday is at the end of the summer. I’m a little afraid that is what is going to happen this year. Tonight we got our first RSVP, and unfortunately this particular little girl will be away with her family on the day of Jake’s party. I am hopeful that most of the kids will be able to come, but I guess if not, we can do a harvest party or Halloween party or something like that in the fall. It would be fun designing Halloween invitations and putting together fun fall activities, too, so there’s always that. But I know Jake is really looking forward to his party so hopefully it will all work out!
