One day this past summer, My whole family was together for a few days. All the cousins and my brother and sisters in the same spot. Doesn't happen enough. I love every single last one of these kids like they were my own. I would do anything for them. Sam O., Nate, Peter, Greta, Nick, Erica, James, Noah, Lily, Josh, Kate, Sam F., Gabe, Jack, Abby, Hazel, Jane, Rose, and Lizzie. I adore you all. I do have my favorites and you know who you are *wink wink.
One day we were all sitting around, hanging out. My brother was holding my sister's baby, my sister preparing food, another swinging kids, someone was probably changing diapers and wiping away noses too, cousins all around, mostly getting along. I said something like, "this is my heaven." My brother looked at me and said, "I don't know if I want to go to your heaven."
Many Ostergars ventured to Holladay for a visit too. I'll tell what I liked most about them in another post.
