I looked back on this past year and couldn’t help but marvel at all the wonderful things I’ve gotten to do. I wish I had written about the visits and trips individually when they happened but I didn’t, so I’m going to go back and revisit them from memory.
june 13- july7 2022
Sophie and Lottie arrived in nashville June 13. Lottie was 10 months old. She was just starting to crawl. She could move around a bit with her reverse gear working the best. We got out a little pool that she really liked and we introduced her to watermelon. Shortly after Sophie and Charlotte arrived Anthony complained of a sore throat and wanted cat medicine ( antibiotics). After several days of his complaining a home Covid test was strongly so we confined him to his room. Then Sophie and I both started sniffling. We had reservations to go camping at Birmingham point on June 20 and to pick up Oliver at the airport June 23. We went camping a day late since Anthony was recovered and we were starting to feel better. It’s a miracle Oliver remained healthy after being confined in the camper with us. We had a lakeside site and got out in the boat. Sophie and Oliver went to Patti’s.
After camping we took off for Pickwick for a family reunion over the 4th of July. We had one there last year and Sophie wanted to see everyone so I planned another one. I really wasn’t sure it was going to work out, as a number of people weren’t coming and there was no fireworks. It turned out to be a good reunion. I was relieved. The visit ended July 7 when we took them to Kristin’s house in nashville and she took them to the airport. Sad for them to leave.
