We had a wonderful reunion of my side of the family. My nephew, Christian, was promoted from grade eight and my sister graduated from Marylhurst college. I got to visit with my 87 year old German grandmother, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and my two dear nephews. It was a whirlwind of activity and not without it's challenges. Vivienne slid in the grass and broke her wrist, in addition to other minor boo-boo's and mishaps. But that is the life of a busy family, and I enjoyed my visit very much. Now we are back and I am so happy to be home. I have so many warm memories that I have brought with me.
