Maggie celebrated her birthday at school, then at swimming lessons, and then went out for tea to Pizza Hut with family and a friend. We made birthday cupcakes to give out at school and swimming, to make the day feel a little more special.
Liam was away at school camp for his 13th birthday. It felt so weird waking up in the morning and not being able to wish him a happy birthday. One of the teachers on camp made him a birthday package with lollies and chocolates inside, and all the kids sang happy birthday to him. He chose to celebrate at Hogs Breath Cafe with family.
Both kids received phone calls from friends and family members which made their day. The annual Happy Birthday Song phone call from the Brumpton family is always received with much joy!!
So, to my two beautiful children, I wish you much joy and happiness this year. May you enjoy your year at school, make new, and enjoy old friendships, and above all learn to be your own person.
I love you both.
