Visit Our Violin Shop & Music Retreat
Dear Family and Friends,
We have now been doing this for a month, and we have enjoyed it immensely.  First of all, we have made contact with many friends and family that we haven't heard from in a long time, and secondly, it has been fun to see ourselves and realize just how happy we are! :) If you would like to see our fun Halloween pictures, click on the Summer/Fall link. Also, remember to click on our family picture to view our Music Retreat and Violin Shop sites.

KaraLyn, since you were half named after me, does that make me your favorite aunt? I just spent a few minutes looking at your music retreat and violin shop sites - you are a busy, busy girl! And you are doing some remarkable things. It's good to see pictures of your little family - that is growing up quickly. And it was fun to see pictures of the family reunion. I think my sister has done a great job with her kids. Keep posting fun pictures.
Love, your favorite aunt

I was laughing so hard at the story about shoeless William, I started crying! Poor kid, and so funny that you got a picture of it! You'll laugh at that one for a long time, I'm sure. And if that's the worst thing you've done as a mother, KaraLyn, you're in good shape. :)

Can I just say that I couldn't stop laughing about William's shoes!  I can totally see myself doing that, and I only have two kids!  You are one of the best moms ever, no worries!  We've all been there!
