This fall has been quite a family-centered one, which has been really nice. My youngest brother is a senior in high school. It’s his second year as drum major, and this fall I’ve had the opportunity to see him lead the band a number of times. I must say it’s been a highlight of some of my weeks to go to the high school football games and watch him perform with my family.
This fall my other brother returned home from Oregon, where he served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My whole family went to the airport to pick him up and welcome him home. With him home from his mission, our whole family is once again back together in Virginia. I don’t think we’ve all been living in the same state since before my older sister went off to college.
