Sabbatical In Ithaca

My brother has been on sabbatical at Cornell for the Spring semester. I was so excited to get to see him stateside. Cousin time was also much appreciated by our boys!

Eamon and Ciara got on great of course. Full disclosure…… Eamon was going to be named Ciara if he was a girl. I was so glad when we had a third boy that Donal had named his daughter Ciara. Just Perfect, In Every Way.

We went to the excellent Museum of the Earth, a very well-done museum with great fossils and just enough to keep the littles interested.

And we also were lucky enough to see Harvard come from behind to beat Cornell in the men’s basketball. We all had our Harvard gear on, but Donal and family were “neutral”.

It was so wonderful to see Cian and Ciara again. I was so grateful for the opportunity to see everyone in real life, and not on an iphone screen…
