We had Beck, Jack, Aidan and Ally for the weekend and stayed at Sarah’s house where there’s more room and more for the kids to do. I managed to come down with a very sore throat and eventually lost my voice almost altogether which the kids thought was quite funny. Thankfully everyone is pretty self sufficient and the older ones helped with the younger ones.
Sunday my niece Missy and four of her five kids were in town from Japan so they and my ex’s Aunt Frankye came over for the afternoon, bringing us all some pizza for lunch. The second-cousins don’t really know each other very well since they don’t get to see each other often so a happy time was had by all as they swam and played together for several hours. It’s always good to see Aunt Frankye, who is 90 and still full of vim and vigor. I aspire to be like her!
