the eric update - day 1821: The Great Pre-Birthday Party!

it's hard to believe but odin's 5th birthday is almost here and this year we decided to have a pre-birthday party at norskedalen, a local norwegian-american culture center, before his "real" birthday party with family in the upper peninsula of michigan.

of course, if your name is odin, you simply must play a few round of your new favorite game kubb, or viking chess, with guests!

since we usually typically are on vacation during his birthday, this was his first we celebrated with his friends and i must say that it was a bit daunting to plan a party for 15 youngsters and their parents!

i think everyone had a grand time.

odin really, really, really enjoyed getting together with all his friends and we're all super appreciative to everyone who came out and made it a wonderfully fantastic, memorable day.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
