Like Kool & the Gang reminds us, when we find ourselves singing their hit song over and over again in our heads on a random Monday morning...oh, is that just me? Well, not anymore, right? Sometimes life is full of reasons to celebrate, as has been the case here at the Baumgarts!
(I suggest clicking that link above in a new window and playing the song while you read the rest of this post.)
This past Friday, we had a small celebratory dinner to commemorate my acceptance into midwifery school! Yes, I finally received my acceptance letter from Bastyr University into their Master's of Science in Midwifery program. I will be starting the three year program this September. I am looking forward to a life changing, self transformative experience throughout this next journey of my life.

The aforementioned dinner was a husband cooked success! Jamie found a recipe on line for enchiladas, I walked with him through his shopping expeience getting ingredients, and then he cooked them all by himself. And they we so delicious! Everyone loved them, even the kids!
Tallulah turned seven this past weekend! We had a small birthday dinner for her on Saturday where we sang happy birthday and opened a few gifts. It is the first time I have not got together a bigger party for one of my kids...no school friends, no theme, nothing. I think we'll take in a matinee one day coming up, and invite a few friends. And to be honest, Tallulah doesn't seem to mind, or have noticed.
