I hope all you moms had a nice celebration on your special day last weekend. I certainly did. I traveled to Northern California to be with my son, Chris, and daughter, Heather, and their respective families.
It was especially joyful to once again to be with Chris’ kids. They have all just returned from their three-and-a-half year residence in England. Aidan, 11, Lucan, 9, and Morgan, 4, are happy to be back in their own home again and to see their school chums of long ago. They all have nuances of a British accent that is very charming.
I also had an opportunity to watch Heather’s budding thespian Catherine, who is 8, in the opening night of a play she is in with the Palo Alto Children’s Theatre. Her 5-year-old brother, Ryan, sat right next to me and was absolutely mesmerized to see his big sister in costume and on the stage singing and dancing.
