My family is still anxiously awaiting the arrival of Shannon and Josh's new baby boy. My nephew was due on the first but has been playing an extended April Fool's joke on his parents. This means, however, that Shannon will be able to continue on the family heritage of procrastination and tardiness. As a kindergartener she believed her nickname was 'Tardy' because that is how her teacher greeted her each morning as she walked into the classroom. Our grandmother likes to remind us that our father (her firstborn) 'was late when he was born and he's been late ever since'.
I will be flying to Texas on Monday to see this new baby. Please say a prayer and hold a good thought for a safe and healthy delivery for both my sister and her son.
