My family has been rolling into town for the past couple of days. People from my father's side of the family have been arriving from across the country. While a few people are missing, the bulk of the family is all here. They are here to be together, to meet Elise, and to see her baptism this Sunday. I am very thankful for this amazing group of people who are willing to make such a journey in order to keep this family so close.
