A little over a year ago, my cousin, Jeremiah traveled out to Redlands from North Dakota for a quick visit. He was here to interview for a medical fellowship with Kaiser. Jill and I were really excited about the possibility of Jeremiah and his family coming out here for a year, but Fontana was just one of several places around the country in which he was interviewing. Happily for us, California won out. I think it had something to do with Rubio’s tacos. The year is going very quickly, but we’ve been having a great time getting to know them and their kids, who are a riot by the way. The kids bring a lot of energy to their house. But apparently, not enough.

This little girl was born just a couple of months ago. She gets lots of attention from her siblings, and it’s fun to see the kind of energy she brings to their home.
