I haven’t expressed my appreciation for my family around here lately. I have say, they’re all pretty terrific. All of our parents plus an aunt and uncle came for Eric’s grad school graduation this past weekend. They took the trouble, time, and expense to travel here and sit in the sun for the best part of four hours to watch him walk across the stage. Then they braved traffic and starvation to get to the restaurant he wanted to go to, even though it was half an hour further away from home, and we didn’t have to pay the bill!
Like I said, they’re all pretty great. Thanks, Mom and Carel, Dad and Linda, Jan and Liz, David and Beth, Alex and Emma, and Vicky and Justin for sharing the day with us. It was wonderful that we could all be together, even if no one thought to get a group photo!
