I imagine we are not the only grandparents who believe that their grandchildren are the greatest. We are no exception.  Adam is 3 and the son of Nate, one of the Ripley kids that was born to us.  Nate met and married Mesky, while working in Ethiopia and Adam was born while they lived there.  They are now located in Port Angeles and it is great having them close.

At the moment we are visiting our daughter Robin and her family in Salt Lake City. She and Ryan have three children aged 11 to 17. They are each very special as well and I’ll be writing about them very soon!
