The birthday celebrations continued this evening, at a magic show up in the city! We had a terrific time!
Callum volunteered for one of the tricks - where he colored in a drawing while the magician had his back turned. Then, after, the magician showed the same drawing he had sealed in an envelope that was colored the same as Callum's! Impressive! :)
It was such a nice day. Hope everyone had a lovely St. Paddy's Day!!
Today is my birthday! I had a really nice time earlier today at "afternoon tea" for brunch with Jon and the boys. We all really enjoyed ourselves. The boys asked if we could go again sometime and Logan asked if he could go for his birthday! I figure that's a pretty big two thumbs up from those kids. ;-)

|This place had plates for the kids too! PB&J tea sandwiches and little mini pizzas with their scones - could be a big reason why the boys loved it so much :)|
|Logan took this pic - not bad, right?!?|
Interestingly, Callum's teacher decided to have the kids present at their own conference, so I got to also listen to Callum's self-assessment and question him directly too! I loved his "reflection" paper (that he was reading off of in the meeting) and had to share here.
When he said he needs to work on talking a little less - I said, "hmmm, what a surprise!"
And he said, "What? How is that a surprise? I talk a lot!!"

One set of neighbors next to us also don't have power. But every other neighbor (including the ones on the other side of us) still have power! So who knows what happened. Everyone in the neighborhood confirms they also heard the loud boom - so it wasn't just me imagining things.
Callum's home sick today. He played on his iPad for a bit but I decided he should read a little since "it's still light now, and who knows when we'll get our power back on..." ;-) Luckily for me, he didn't argue!

Logan's class is having an "I Love Reading Day" on the 14th, so his teacher suggested Valentines that might be reading related (i.e. a bookmark).
We're still working on them, but I think they're coming along nicely. 📖❤️😁

The first words out of Callum's mouth when I woke him this morning were, "Logan's coming home today!!" :) The poor guy has really missed his buddy.
Joe, the bus driver, confirmed that out of every single kid he's asked on his route, Callum was the *only* one who said he missed his brother this week. Apparently, the rest of the kids mostly just shrugged and/or said "not really" when asked if they missed their sibling this week! LOL
So, when Logan joined me to pick up Callum at the bus stop this afternoon - I kid you not, Callum hugged Logan tightly for a solid two minutes, the minute he stepped off the bus. (Sadly, I didn't have my phone with me to capture such a sweet moment!)
Those two continue to melt our hearts. ❤️
