Many thanks to those who have wished me a happy birthday and who have celebrated my birthday with me this week. I hope to publish some photos tomorrow from my birthday celebrations (both of them!) and to write an update on my studies, which continue to be a joy.

Here is what I wrote on yesterday's quiz on the past and future tenses of "sum." Don't ask why I got "estis" wrong (if you must know, I was confusing it with the French—one really shouldn't think too hard about these things):

sum, es, est, sumus, estes*, sunt
erō, eris, erit, erimus, eritis, erunt

We were told to study the imperfect as well, but it turned out not to be on the quiz. I would have written:

eram, erās, erat, erāmus, erātis, erant

*Should have written "estis."
