this weekend, i was at a family reunion in indy. when i was younger, i used to avoid these gatherings, but in my old age (?) i have come to look forward to them. it is so weird to see how everyone else is getting older. the kids that used to be in elementary school are now about to graduate high school.
family is a funny thing. when i am at these reunions, i can't believe i don't hang out with these people more...but in the two years between reunions, i barely think twice about them. i suppose that will be my new year's resolution. to keep up with family more.
the rice clan has always been close...now i need to share the love with the extended ones.
