Our Latest Birthday Boy

Can do this...


And this...


Plays this...


And this...


Occasionally this...
(when school theatricals call for it)


And this...
(And pretty much every other sport, indoor and outdoor...)
Paints things like this...
Permits this...


And can juggle school, and choir, and boarder supervisory duties
with five black olives on one hand.
And smile while he does it.

Jonathan Charles:


A True Renaissance Man

Jon turned 18 on March 28th... and lucky guy, he got to spend his birthday in Italy! We missed seeing him on his special day, but we didn't wish he was here.

Happy Birthday, Jon, dove mai si trova!

We love, love, love you!

(Yeah, we're having a run of birthdays lately, aren't we? They come in bunches around here, clustering
around March/April and September/October mainly. Gabe's birthday is next on Easter Sunday, and then we have a rest until our daughter-in-law-to-be's birthday in May...)

PS: Bia, my favorite Italian translator, did I use the English/Italian translator site properly above?

DID YOU SAY ITALY? AS IN . . . THE BOOT-SHAPED COUNTRY ACROSS THE OCEAN? JON IS IN ITALY? WHERE? FOR HOW LONG? IF HE'S IN NORTHERN ITALY HE CAN VISIT MY RELATIVES . . . THEY WILL FEED HIM WELL.

ITALY?! ITALY??????
