Justin is Back

His comment: "It was a good experience but not life-changing or anything." Take into consideration that this was not his first time out of the country. Also, that he was never one to express exorbitant amounts of visable enthusiasm. For example, when his favored team won the world series after 86 years, this avid fan (who had not missed a single televised game and had been absolutely living for this moment) murmered softly, "This is the happiest day of my life." That was the extent of his reaction. Meanwhile his cousin Mossflower called us SCREAMING from the Red Sox Nation. No coherent words. Just screaming. We knew it was her and understood what she meant. She then called her sister's home in Canada and for all I know may have screamed at every one she knows or is related to. That's how she expresses herself!




Here is the weary world traveler, relaxing on a family kayak outing this afternoon.

Interesting how totally opposite the two cousins are!

Glad he's back safe and sound. My niece, Julie, leaves for Brazil a few hours after she graduates next Sunday. She can't wait!

Oh, I hope she has a wonderful time and a great experience. Maybe she'll blog all about it.

Yes, I hope she keeps her blog up. She has her MySpace thing, but that's very different from blogging. I am going to miss her terribly. I've been in school with her for 13 years! Sigh...

It looks like Justin is a good guy to have around in case of an emergency. He'll be the only person not to panic and lose his cool.

I hope I hold up as well as you when my kids are a bit older as yours are. I watch you with great interest since mine are just kind of following yours.
