I brought those cupcakes that you saw yesterday to Sophie's class, and we had a party. Every time I visit Sophie's class, I am reminded that despite the relative shabbiness of her school and the convoluted, ineffective and ridiculous larger school system, Sophie has a life here, and it is a warm and happy one.
|Sophie with her aide, Saint Renita|
|Mr. Jackson lights the candles|
|Happy Birthday to Sophie|
|Oliver insisted on getting out of school a little early to come celebrate.|
Two seniors from the high school brought Sophie balloons and sang Happy Birthday to her. I thought I was on the set of Glee. I'm not kidding.
Sophie's teacher, Mr. Jackson, sang to her. He's a musician and I believe Sophie is a tiny bit in love with him.
Evidently, Sophie is mesmerized when he sings Jack Johnson. Good to know.
Oliver kept busy helping out the other students with their word puzzles.
Back at the ranch, we had another birthday celebration with The Husband and Henry. We ate a delicious dinner and then lit candles once again and sang Happy Birthday. All in all, it was a fantastic day.
Happy Birthday, Sophie!
