Since we’ve been back we’ve been on one long super enjoyable family fest. It’s been great to see our parents and siblings and nephews and nieces and cousins. When Michael married me he never knew he’d get so much family. I remember introducing him to my great uncle, my second cousins, my great aunt’s daughters son, and so on. And now the boys are getting to enjoy the connectedness too; here they are with their fourth? cousins (my dad’s cousins sons)…and their second cousin. I broke out a family chart the other day to explain it all. It’s fun! I don’t know what they will do when they don’t get to say good night to at least 6 people a night.
