Meet Dakota and Claire, two of my three newest great-nieces!
I got to meet them for the first time a couple of weeks ago at a family gathering. (Sadly, the third new niece's family couldn't make it.)Not so long ago, it seems, we grownups were chasing their parents around at these events. It's wonderful to see a whole new crop of little ones, cousins living and playing together.
The older I get, the more I realize how lucky we are - all of us.
