Two birthdays just passed recently for two very important men in my life.
Happy Birthday, Adrian!
Happy Birthday, Dad!
And that’s not all. My dad tells the same joke e-v-e-r-y year at this time: “The smartest people are born in July”. Mom and I usually respond to this statement with guffaws and protests that the smartest people are actually born during OUR birthday months. (It’s one of those silly family rituals) This year, however, we can’t protest too loudly because Adrian just passed his Master Electrician’s exam.
He took the course in the winter, but was too busy with work at the time to take the test. He was a bit nervous because we’ve heard that many people fail it the first time out. I’m so happy for him that he passed and that it’s behind him now. 😀 When you’re not used to school and tests it can be a little stressful.
We all went out for dinner last night to celebrate these momentous events. It was a wonderful time.
