So I forgot to mention this earlier this week until I saw Kaylen's post on it and thought, oh yeah, I might could mention that to folks.
Mike is the oldest of 4. Christy is two years younger, and then, when Mike was 13, Pete and Steve were born.
They just graduated from SLU (our alma mater) and have teaching jobs and apartments and all those grown up things. On Monday evening, Steve called to let us know that the assumptions I'd been making were true--he and Mary were getting married, officially now. Probably in February or March.
It both makes me very happy to have Mary joining us, and makes me feel very, very old. But it's not about me.
