Here we are, Elizabeth Sweeney (DeHority) and Elizabeth Sweeney.
Sam and I tried and tried to get a photo of Grandma with George – the oldest and the youngest members of our LARGE extended family. We did our best, really. Here is the very most successful photo:
My grandmother is in a wonderful nursing home. While we were there, I think the staff came in at least four times just for little things…. I am confident that she is getting the best care. Sure, it would be nicer if she were home, but that’s not possible.
This is the house where my dad grew up, and I spent so many summer weeks when I was little. Dixon and I didn’t get to have a honeymoon right after our wedding, but we had a vacation a couple of months later and we came here. My grandfather was born in this house… it’s been in the family for well over a hundred years.
Many generations have gone to the same school, too (and still do) This is Sacred Heart Academy, founded in 1889.
This is a nifty connection: Emily just finished her time at Interlochen, an arts camp for kids from all over the world, and one of her bunkmates goes to this school! They didn’t figure it out until the summer was over, but Emily’s new friend has been in her cousin Andrew’s class since kindergarten. Small world, huh?
