There was another birthday we celebrated last week, also from afar. Our friend Thomas is now officially 14, and we are so amazed at all that he has become. Congratulations Emily and Mark, you have done, are doing and will continue to do an excellent job.
I have loved watching all 8 of you grow up and look forward to so many more years of friendship.
To your tallest bookend, we are always with you, even from afar.
For those of you not already following the Maedas, Emily has already said it all so well.
