Granddaddy, Grandmommy and Matthew The whole clan
Brief Vacation Update
We had a great time at the NC shore with everybody in my immediate family (plus three spouses and one fiancee and 6 cousins). Matthew got lots of attention from the cousins and seemed to be in just about every photo. Go figure. We’ve been with my folks in NC for the past two weeks getting medical, dental, optical check-ups and just relaxing inbetween. My Mom has been giving Matthew swim lessons in their pool and he is making great progress. Matthew’s highlights have been unlimited orange juice (thanks to Granddaddy!) and nearly unlimited doses of “Sponge Bob”! My favorites have been shopping at Wal-Mart, reading, seeing the “Harry Potter” movie and spending time with my parents.
We are driving over to Raleigh today and then fly out to Florida early Monday morning. We will be with our 2nd cousin, Leslie until we head for Haiti Thursday. Keep Haiti and Jamaica in your prayers in light of Hurrican Dean. I’ll post photos after I get back to Fond-des-Negres. I forgot to come with my cable. (I found some that my brother had sent.) If you want to get in touch by phone in the next couple of days, message me and we will figure something out.
Matthew and Aaron (a soph at Cornell) and Robby, the soldier (as Matthew calls him), recently graduated from Augsberg
