It’s a big day today.

And by the time this posts we will be celebrating it in a pretty cool place (Angkor Wat!).

The bearer of “the birthday treat:”

She wasn’t duped into how cool it would be to bring fruit this year (last year we brought rainbow fruit kebabs) and was determined we were going to bring brownies so we did.

And her class loved it.

Made me so happy to be in that class with wonderful teachers and kids.

Lu is one lucky birthday girl.

Happy Birthday dear Lu!
