En route

Today was spent en route to Des Moines. We were not originally planning this mini-vacation, but were glad we were able to make it down to spend some time here to see Alex's Godmother.

Unfortunately, Cathleen's beloved grandmother, Benji, passed away a few days ago. Cathleen's family has been so much of an extended family to me (since 6th grade), that it was very important to me to be here for Benji's funeral. I have so many warm memories of her, especially from my middle school and high school years, when I spent as much time at the Saylor home as I did at my own-- she was a nurturing and loving woman who always had time for her grandkids (and whoever else they dragged home!).
