Amara on vacation

Amara met some Hunter/Wallace cousins, aunts and uncles in Aruba thanks to Jess' family and frequent flyer miles.

Amara and I have worked out an arrangment allowing us to enjoy what we both love. I assume that Amara, too, benefits from our intellectually stimulating nursing sessions. Two favorites from my maternity leave reading list: Jesus, Uncovering the Life, Teachings and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary (M. Borg), The End of Memory, Remembering Rightly in a Violent World (Volf).

Jess' creative shaving inspired gaugy Aruba tourist outfits for the whole family. The funniest part was that was did not stand out at the airports.

Amara and I enjoyed our early morning hikes on beaches, across sand dunes and through the island’s wind-swept desert interior.
