Hopes of Reconnecting.

I've decided that it's time for me to reconnect to all the cousins I used to enjoy so much and to perhaps connect with some that I never got to know very well in the past. (That's mostly because of age differences.)

When I really stop to think about it, I'm quite sad that I don't do things with relatives. I don't call them or visit or write. I'm not sure how it came to be like that. When I was little, half my life was consumed with cousins. I played a lot with Andrea and Beau and Caleb. Once we all tried to sleep on the same bed-- and this when we were grown teenagers!

I really miss the past when there was nothing better to do than have an adventure in the gulch or go wandering off in the woods at a family reunion campout. I don't kid myself that things were perfect, but I do have sweet memories.

Now I want to build more! I want to get to know everyone now that we're all grown up! I'm sure we were all born into the same family for a reason. And I want to show off my cute sweet Paul too.
