290 is so much higher than 270

Memories of one year ago.

I remember parts of that day. Unexpected is the first word that comes to mind, with excitedly happy a close second (and third). In these times of instant communication, it took quite a while for me to get the news. Time spent quietly in a closed room, off the grid, deep in work. Followed by notes to call home, missed calls and messages. There have been many times I have not listened to messages before returning a call, and been admonished for my laziness. I did not listen to any messages, and called home. Carl was excited, but less than clear during the initial stages of the conversation. He assumed I knew. knew what? It was the type of conversation that could be the basis of a comedy. In our defense, Corwin was about a month early.

So much has changed since that day.

New home, lots of exploring the space, new work environments, lots of new clothes, and finally a new president (elect).

We are so happy, still, and so proud of the thoughtful way Rey and Becca are bringing up Corwin.
