In 17 days we will boarding our flight back to Dublin. Louisville to Chicago to Dublin is the route this time as we have the usual overnight flight, leaving on the 14th and arriving the next morning. We are spending as much time as we can with our kids, grandkids and extended family and friends here in the Northern Kentucky area.
Right now our sons Andrew & Matt & there families are either staying with us, or we with them . . . sort of! Matt is actually out-of-town for work until tonight, but his wonderful wife Christie and their 3 kids are here. Yesterday we had 9 cousins all together for a few hours. Andrew's 3 (Abby, Joseph & Caitlin), Matt's 3 (Isaiah, Lillie & Riece) and my brother's son Chris and his 3 (Becky, Lizzie & Matea). Have you ever tried to get 9 kids, under 8 or younger to pose for a photo at the same time? Wow that was hard! Below is the best I could do . . . A pic of 5 year old Isaiah is below that, he was in the emergency room this past week . . . TWICE! Stiches the first time from running into a counter top, and a splinter in his foot the size of manhattan the second time!
