Today is Mª Ignacia 8 birthday. She has turn into a lovely little woman. She was thrilled with her children adaptation of the Illiad and Odissey, and also ask for a Piñata. She still is my little girl.
We have a birthday rite for all of us.
We left the table set in a nice way the night before. We wake up early to prepare a delicious breakfast, and then wake - the all ready awake but feing sleeping birthday person - in that moment we give him/her a present which is by rule, a book. In the case of the kids we tell them how was theday they were born.
We share a half an hour and then we all run in madness not to be late. It is always like that, and we all expect it .
On sunday I'll be recieving all her class (30) and some cousins and family friends at three o`clock. I'm not looking for that. Every year I made expectaculars birthday parties, last year was a Harry Potter one. But know I'm really tired after sinusitis, Social Pedagogy Congress and the end of term/year. Smart hubby - not my favorite pearson right now - invite some friends to a barbecue that same sunday. He say they will help us with the birthday preparation. Sure, I bet.
Yesterday I made my last lecture. There were no tricky questions as I was afraid. Even a Spanish woman ask me for bibliography in etnography issues.
Gacked from all my flist. ( Past, Present, Future )
