Lori and I are now officially in the fourth decade of our lives. She celebrated this milestone yesterday with some pomp and interesting circumstances. We got to have a meal to ourselves thanks to some babysitting duties from our friends. One of our church members told me that it wasn’t her 40th birthday that made her emotional, but it was when her first child reached the age of 40. Here are the candidates for the job in our family. It looks like Cally has an early lead. I’m not in a hurry to see this happen, however. And I don’t have to be happy about it.
