I have returned from a lovely four days in Andover, Mass., visiting my daughter and son-in-law and two grandsons. As I have probably said before, I am becoming the "Frequent Flyer Grammy." Ken stays home to care for the four legged members of our family. We spent a day at my oldest grandson's swim meet. He did very well in his races. One day we went to Lowell to visit an exhibition and a museum.
We also have had some big excitement in our family. My sister's daughter Suzanne (one of my only two nieces) and her husband Andrew have taken on a two year teaching assignment in the Northern Mariana Islands. If you are like me, you are saying, "Where is that??"
The Northern Mariana Islands are located in the North Pacific Ocean and they are a Commonwealth of the United States. Suzanne and Andrew are on the island of Rota which is about 8 miles long. I look forward to checking in on them via their blog Operation Rota.
There was a big family Bon Voyage Party for them a few weeks ago. Here is a picture of the delicious cake.
Good luck, Suzanne and Andrew. What a wonderful adventure!
