I don’t know why I can’t bring myself to delve in to current events without some homage to my absence. But rather than berate myself, a quick update instead:
Some stuff happened.
Not enough? Alright, alright. A few quick details (and accompanying visual stimulation)…
A brother became a missionary:
Some nieces and nephews got even cuter.
(A new nephew was born! I love you, Sammy!)
Some vacations, holidays and plain, precious family bonding.
A lot of daunting dissertation dissonance (and unfortunately very little actual dissertating action).
But most importantly (or most recently): Jennie turned 30!
(Jennie’s favorite color is red, “just in case you couldn’t tell”).
We really had a great time. We even talked about making it a tradition for each successive sibling turning 30 (in which case Paula would be up next year and me in a short two years after that, crazy!). I hope we really do, it was just fun to celebrate together.
And that’s how it’s done, folks! (Catch-up/re-entry to the blogosphere, that is.)
Tag, you’re it.
