Day 69 – January 8, 2011


Even though yesterday was the calendar date for Jonathan’s birthday, we celebrated today for lunch.  Every man wants a steak, cooked rare, and a glass of red wine for his 21st birthday!  Some asparagus and an apple-upside-down cake make it complete.

The singing of “Happy Birthday” was average, at best.

He opened cards and presents and relaxed with us for a short time.  Before we knew it, he was packing all his worldly belongings and heading back to IU for his spring semester.

Suddenly, the house seems so quiet.
