A Weekend in NY

It's been difficult keeping my Chapters up to date for a number of reasons. First and foremost, it's been busy, and between settling in and getting back into a school routine, it has been difficult to find time to write. Aside from that, though, I honestly haven't felt like it. Not that our transition has been that tough all things considered; I just haven't had the writing bug or photography bug for that matter. But seeing as how this is the biggest change to date in our lives as a family, I thought it is about time I get back to recording the details. And, since trying to "catch up" seems like quite a daunting task, I will treat this as I do my scrapbooking and just start back where I am rather than backtracking.

We've had a special weekend this weekend. Mark's family has quite a history at a private college in New York. Recently, the college added a Nursing School, and they honored one of my wonderful sisters-in-law by naming it after her. This weekend was the dedication, so as much of the family as could make it met for a mini-reunion and to support my sister-in-law. She gave a wonderful speech at the dedication, and we were all very proud of her as she accepted her honor both beautifully and humbly.

It has been a fun time of reconnecting with members of the family, and we have had the chance to enjoy the beauty of New York as well.

I've had very little desire to keep up Bedlam. It's the writing blahs.

Wow! All the new *not in the south* places you're getting to see! Living geography! LOL!

Congrats to your sis-in-law! What an honor!

Great pictures, and a wonderful honor.

I finally got my camera working and have tons of pictures and a few things to blog about, but now the port for my camera is acting up. Maybe one of these days everything will work right at the same time. :-)
