Dave & Erica were missing--and were missed--as they were in LA for a funeral. But, we had the 4 Shubin kids with us, so they were still represented! (Amy H joked when we unloaded from the car that it looked like an unending stream of kids piling out of the suburban!)
It's so wonderful to think of our children growing up together, in the same community. I think this is only the beginning of some wonderful friendships. Amy H noted later-- not once did we have to ask or answer the question, why adoption or why Ethiopia. We already know--we *get* each other--and it is a wonderful kinship. Here's some photos from our time together.
