Gloria is turning 9!
Not until next Sunday.
But next Sunday there is some big football game on or something like that???
So we were going to celebrate on Saturday, the fourth of February.
But then she went and won the science fair at her school.
Which means that she goes on to the regional science fair, held at the local university.
And that? Just happens to be on February 4th.
Which led us to "Plan C" and a party yesterday.
Choir school threw me a slight curve ball, but we worked around that.
I didn't have it in me to come up with a "Plan D."
So yesterday we celebrated.
A few friends, some good food, and in Gloria's words, "It was a most perfect party."
And then she informed me that just 366 days after next Sunday she would be turning double digits.
But I have 366 days plus a week to ignore that fact, right?
