Oh what an eventful five weeks it has been for us.
Our memories of all the excitement are
comforting us now as we reminisce about it all.
On June 3rd the Talstras arrived from Cambodia and promptly
went to Virginia leaving us with Cedar for 10 fun days . . .
When the Tastras returned we had 2 weeks of fun and frolic
along with visits from Blaine, Lindsay, Seth, and Tracy . . .
Next we borrowed a van from Jim's brother and headed
to Atlanta for a wonderful wedding weekend . . .
In Atlanta Benjamin James married Lindsay Marie
and we now have a new family member . . .
Next - on to the Leisure House in rainy Florida for six days . . .
Now - everyone has returned to their homes in
Brockport, Phnom Penh (via British Columbia), Philadelphia, Burlington, and Rochester.
We thank god for the blessing of family.
Post Script . . .
A thought from one of my friends . . .
"The let down after they go back to their homes and jobs is tremendous but then you realize that you could never keep up that pace day in and day out. The quiet that you hear in the house is both sad but also restful. You know that it would be nice if they lived closer but when you see their happy faces, you know they are where they should be at this time in their lives." CB
