Without planning, I have taken a blogging break; it's been quite a while since I posted, but here I am again. A flurry of activities near the end of August came and went too quickly. There was a wonderful family get together on August 25, with barbecue overseen by Tony, the greatest day with all my children, grandchildren, and so many other very dear family members. It was a time to catch up on the latest news, admire the new baby, remark on how children had grown, and plans for the coming year. Here are some random pictures. I didn't get pictures of everyone and I'm very sorry about that! I want to experience that time over and take tons more pictures. I wish I could see everyone more often!
