|A portion of the grand-kids on "pumpkin patrol" at the family reunion.|
I am the oldest of 5 and the only girl. While most of my brothers have moved away, one still lives at home with my parents - about 5 miles down the road. About halfway on the road between us and them - my grandparents. My mom is the oldest of 5 girls - 2 still live in our same community as well. The other 2 live about an hour away. They all have kids too. My step-dad is the oldest living of 4 siblings and his mom lives about an 1 1/2 away and is rather fragile having lost his dad a year ago. My dad recently moved out of state but did live in our same community right by our children's school.
