My sister’s family’s visit is coming to an end. She will take them out to the nearby Cape Cod to stay in a house with some friends and their families. It has been a wonderful, tiring, fulfilling, exhausting experience. Their days here are coming to and end, and it certainly is not the End of Days, but it is hard to imagine after only a few days how life will settle back to a normal routine. We will shrink from nine to four people in the house, we will hopefully have somewhat regular sleep and nap schedules, and a level of sanity may prevail at least for short bursts. However, the time the cousins had together is priceless. They played, argued, and got to know each other. It was also to see my sister and her husband.
