Happy Birthday Joseph!

Joseph Saperstein Frug is 3 today. Happy Birthday!

Pictures from his third birthday party, held at the Science Center on Sunday. (Not unlike George Washington, Joseph's birthday is celebrated on a different day than its actual calendrical date.) The Science Center throws a great birthday party; fun was had by all.

Today, with no particular impetus, your mother came to my mind. She taught me at BU Law, where nearly every student of my acquaintance was thrilled by her decision to visit. Those of us lucky enough to be acquainted with her hoped that we could someday achieve her obvious joy in life and her life's work.
Her work has overcome its naysayers, and is often cited in the legal literature; I teach from it myself. But it is her spirit that that is my lasting remembrance of her.
I went looking for word of her and found your blog, with news of your beautiful son's birthday. And because I believe in these things, I send back to you your mother's joy.

Thank you so much for your beautiful note re: my sister. You have perfectly captured her in your comment re: her "obvious joy in life & her life's work." It's especially fitting for me to read it today as she loved New Year's so much & while she is always in my heart & thoughts, she is especially present with me on this holiday. Thank you!
Sara Stassen (Joseph's great aunt!)

The little king looks amazing! I am also planning the birthday party for my son in a nice LA venue and I was just looking for some ideas. Right now I have a lego birthday theme, a superhero theme, and a space theme. If you have any ideas, please feel free to share!
