On another note, last night my parents (remember, I live at home) invited me to join them in a toast (Martinelli's of course) to celebrate their 38th wedding anniversary. I was happy to be a part of it. I'm proud of them, 38 is a lot, and I'm really grateful for their example.
Allow me a few moments to wax sentimental about the Pate family:
13 college degrees (among the entire family, plus 4 in the works)
2 vans (one 11 passenger, another 12, they are both gone now)
3 trucks (I think)
10 sets of braces
27 pairs of glasses (that I can remember)
30+ sleeping bags
3 camping trailers
and of course,
1 happy family.
Since I am child #7, I may have missed a few things, but you get the point.
I'm a fan of the whole family concept, I hope you all are as well.
My weekend starts today, I'm flying out to see Kyle (we aren't quite at 38 years, but we're working on it) tonight. Enjoy your President's day!
