Today is our younger son's birthday. For the first time in many years, we are with him - or he is with us! As with many other families, our children scattered to the south and to the north!
I have friends who have all three of their kids living close to them. Our two do not. Mainly because we are in a small town with very few new jobs in their chosen fields!
So we are glad when we can all get together. This time our daughter-in-law in the northwest and their two girls could not visit but we saw the ones from the south and the birthday guy.
