I spent yesterday home sick, but dragged myself out of bed so that we could give Meg her presents before Hannah went to school.
Since Meg was tiny, she has always been interested in the moon and stars. She had been saying for months that what she really wanted for her birthday was a book about the moon. Luckily I found one which seems to fit the bill.
After breakfast she cracked out the lego we also bought for her. Lego is always a favourite in our house, and a new set with flowers and a horse was very popular!
After lunch Country Boy and Meg sat down to look at the space book. Unfortunately for us, it seems to have created more questions than answers. For example, "What noises do planets make when they crash into each other?" and "If God is bigger than the universe, does that mean we are in his tummy?".
We had home made pizzas for dinner (Megs favourite) followed by the all important birthday cake. I had planned a slightly grander design, but the flu put stop to that, but she was still super excited and impressed.
Miss Meg is off to big school next year. It seems hardly anytime since she was born. Happy Birthday, 5 year old!
