This is now the 4th time over the last two years we have gotten together with my cousin Micheal and his family. Really the 4th time in my life that I remember. It was so weird because in my head I knew that we have barely known eachother but it really felt the same as hanging out with the family we have known our whole lives. This trip we just did life with them. The food pantry, family game night, rootbeer floats, singing to Cora who’s birthday was today, Sunday morning church service, and a potluck lunch. A little snow was thrown in the mix of all that so Eve is convinced that it must be Christmas. It couldn’t have been a more perfect way to spend this weekend. The problem is that Oregon is so far from Indiana, and with only a few weeks left in Virginia it will be the last time for a long time that we are all together. Thank goodness for FaceBook and text messaging, and next time we get together hopefully we can do some camping or hiking. Happy 14th Birthday Cora!!! Goodbye for now Micheal, Kristen, Cora, Olivia, Naomi, and Josiah we will be missing you guys for sure.
