Family: I'm Prime!

A prime number that is -- a prime number is defined as a natural number that has only two distinct divisors: 1 and itself. There are an infinite number of these numbers (isn't that amazing?). But, back to the post -- guess which one I turned today? Here are your choices:
29 31 37 41 43 47 53 59 61

The answer is below ...

I had a wonderful birthday ... with lots of fun with the kiddoes including drama club, lots of read-alouds, and not needing to drive till this afternoon. We had pizza for dinner and Kotch made a luscious birthday cake. We watched a family movie -- A&E's Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor (which leaves more questions than answers, by the way and should make for some fun debates when we get to this point in American History!).

I got cards from near and dear relatives (including a Duck-singing email from one of my favorite brothers), the Drama Club sang happy birthday (and the ladies were amazed I'm so old) and even Brikhead called to wish his aged mother a happy day.

Kotch got the littles to create and illustrate a beautiful poetry book ... she chose appropriate poems for each and then had them illustrate it. What a lovely gift. On top of that she helped with the chores all day, including the dishes tonight. She's a keeper.

DH gave me the fascinating book, The Wonders of Lourdes: 150 Miraculous Stories of the Power of Prayer -- we are BIG believers in the power of prayer around here and this book means alot to the two of us (especially since we've been fortunate enough to visit Lourdes with the kiddoes twice!).

And for those who chose to guess which prime number I am now, here's the answer:

Happy belated birthday! I'm so out of it, but I should have remembered since it is close after Rick's. Glad it was a good one. Miss you.
