Dear Joseph and Lucia,
It’s at the end of the day on Tuesday, and tomorrow I get to have the first of five days off at home! That’s a rare treat and I can’t wait, especially as your Dad will be there with me!
We have alot to be Thankful for – one of those things is being able to look forward to having you guys celebrate Holidays with us one day. Melynda and Rachael will be with their “other family” on Thursday, and have a second “Thankgiving” with us on Friday. Hopefully, a similar arrangement can be made with you all in the future. I enjoy imagining telling you about all our adventures and finding out about all of yours. Last Sunday, I had a skype conversation with my Grandma’s Father’s Grandniece, Irene Dalton nee Redpath,…. from my Scottish family, it’s just such a wonderful thing to build broken family bridges and I look forward to doing that with you both.
In the meantime, we are going to prepare a Friday meal of a Leg of Lamb, roast potatoes, beets, parsnips and carrots and a made from scratch apple pie! Yum!
I hope you have a wonderful week (off school) and may the time between now and meeting you be ever shorter!
X HUG! Michele
