[I stumbled across this picture when culling my photo stash today, and couldn't resist sharing it. I miss those cheeky blue eyes already!]

This morning, bleary-eyed and a little teary-eyed, my sister and I engulfed in tight hugs and were engulfed by our littlest brother and our mama before they flew across the sea to join our dad, who has begun a new job and a new adventure in another country. This is new for us. We are generally a Stick-Together-Family. I'm pretty sure the longest time I've ever been apart from my mother is three weeks. This separation by land and sea will certainly attempt to stump our familyish delight in sharing the minutest details of our lives with one another. I say 'attempt' because there is Skype. And email. And blogging. And LiveJournal. I intend to fully exploit every one of those methods of communication in keeping in contact with the rest of my family. Huzzah for the twenty-first century, I say.
