Having children gave rise to a new season in my life—the birthday season. All my kids have birthdays in the middle of the summer within a span of a month (two are twins). I’ve learned that birthdays are the height of existence for young children, especially girls. Summer is fond enough, but now it is wrapped in birthdays. In past years, I’ve done separate postings but the “season” runs so fast. So here they are lumped into one sprint, the speed at which everything seems to go by. In about ten birthday seasons from now I’ll probably need to visit this photo for sanity purposes.
