Last Notes on Hadley’s 10th Birthday Party

I spent two hours at the library writing a scavenger hunt out of this fairie book. It (the scavenger hunt) was pretty good if I’m going to pay myself on the back. And it was incredibly rewarding that some repeat guests remembered our scavenger hunt from last year and professed their love. I just want to write that down here on this emotionally charged night when I’ve been accused of “not acting like a mom” and “not acting like I want to live with” Hadley. So someday she can look back and reassure herself that those ideas simply cannot coexist with annual two hour hand written scavenger hunts.
