This huge family reunion is a two day affair. Day two involves splitting off into smaller branches.
But, we start our morning off with breakfast with my immediate family– my sister and her family, plus my mom of course.
This day was harder. It meant saying goodbye to my sister and her family who Big L has grown close to over the past few weeks. Of course, for my kids, it also meant saying goodbye to their cousins and for me, it meant saying goodbye to my sister, niece and nephews. That’s an awful lot of goodbyes to people we love a whole lot.
Fortunately, Big L will get to see them again just before she goes “home” at the end of August, just for about a day. We are missing these folks a lot!
