We hope everyone is doing well. I thought I’d pass along a brief update and some photos.
We had a very nice time visiting with Suzanne’s parents over Christmas. It was great to see our new niece Ally. My mom and Allan came up to visit with us as well, so we really got to see a lot of family. After the holidays, we celebrated my and Kyle’s birthdays. A bit later, we had the Pinewood Derby at Kyle’s Cub Scout Pack. He did okay, especially for the first time we built a car and my general lack of woodworking skills.
In early February, we had Kyle’s birthday party at Dairy Queen. It was a great time with lots of kids. Kyle also did his first science project. (Suzanne has some photos on her phone, but I haven’t gotten them off yet and it’s non-trivial to do so.) A big event near the end of the month was Kyle’s Cub Scout Pack’s trip to sleepover on the Battleship USS New Jersey. Kyle had been looking forward to this since it was announced in Sept. It was a great time, though the 2 1/2 hour tour on Saturday evening, much spent outside in the 40 degree, drizzly night, was a bit long. As I write this, Suzanne and Kyle are in South Carolina as Suzanne had a business trip to a conference only 20 minutes from her parents. We don’t have any other big events planned for the time, but I’m sure something will come up.
