Here is a short update of what has been happening the past few weeks.
Thanksgiving Day we spent at Uncle Don and Lolane Andra’s home in Kensington, Maryland. We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving meal with them and the rest of the Rock Creek Ward. We really enjoyed ourselves although we did not get to take home any left overs. They came down to Richmond that evening and spent Friday through Monday with us. Amanda took them to Monticello, we went to Jamestown Settlement on Saturday, Sunday we toured some of Richmond, and Monday we went to Shirley Plantation. The highlight in the whole thing was taking them to church with us and meeting up for lunch with Sister Andra on Monday. Sister Andra is Donald’s brother’s granddaughter, my second cousin. It was a new idea for me to be at lunch with three missionaries and they are all related to me! Please notice the picture I posted of us in the Virginia Living and Andra Family Albums.
Amanda has been a little stressed with finals coming this week. So there has been a juggling act of sorts here at the Ross apartment. I put my first application in for law school last night. We we start the mad rush of applications and then the hurry up and wait game. I guess I better start putting some more effort into securing employment after the new year.
In other news, I received a message from the detective for mother’s case. I very much appreciate his goodness and comments. I did have a few questions to ask of him and I hope he will respond. Perhaps we can put to rest a few questions I have had lingering over these years.
