The years (2008)

Winter break 2008 featured the birth of our youngest nephew, who is turning six this year.

Fall 2008 had been my first fall semester at SA, and the challenge of doing so many things for the first time had left me very much in need of a break.  It’s definitely better now.  And I was screening manuscripts for a book contest.  And I was surprised to find that some high school students give their teachers holiday gifts.  (This year was pretty much as usual: a few Starbucks/Barnes and Noble cards, a few homemade or store-bought treats.)  This was also the year we began a tradition of going to a particular pub/restaurant to hear our caroling friend; I guess this year will be our sixth time doing that?  The Snork Maiden was coming down with something that evening, but I managed not to get sick until break, when I got a cold.  (I have one right now, unfortunately, but it seems pretty mild so far.)
