#1,621 Family Time, Part 2.
It was another day spent running around hanging out with and helping take care of family on both sides. Steve left for the hospital when the sun came up, so Ben and I made breakfast for Seth and Emily around 8:30 and ate out on the porch to start the day.
I haven’t taken a photo of them this trip YET, which is awful, but we’ve all just been so busy running back and forth to the hospital we didn’t think about it. This is Emily and Seth, most recently. He’s brilliant and got $100k in scholarships when he graduated high school last year. He’s a freshman at U of Tennessee, in the ROTC program studying to be a JAG lawyer. This gentleman slept on our sofa last night and before I woke up had already folded the sheets and blankets and put them in the linen closet then went for a run. No one asked him to do these things. What kind of 18 year old is he?! Emily could be my baby sister—a sophomore in high school, guitarist, athlete, and lover of 90s alternative pop music who enjoys cherry Sprite almost as much as I do. They’re both so sweet and clever. They make me think there’s hope for youngins coming up these days.
