In my recent post “Personal: Saying Goodbye Never Gets Easier, Some Things Never Change,” I discussed how difficult it is for me to say goodbye to my family. I also discussed how precious my family is and how much they mean to me.
Yesterday, my family grew by two members. My dad married his fiancé, making her my new stepmom!
Her son Alden is my new stepbrother now, and I love him very much. I’m glad that I got to attend their wedding with some of my siblings in California.
I’m grateful to have gained a stepmom and a new brother. I’m now the proud oldest brother of 10 siblings!
The wedding ceremony was beautiful, and I’m glad to know that my stepmom and dad love each other so much. It makes me happy to see the both of them happy with one another.
I love having a large family, and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. I’m thankful that my family grew even more, and I have even more people to love.
We’re spending time together in Los Angeles for a week before I fly back to Colorado for school. We’re just hanging around at an Airbnb enjoying time in the pool and playing games as a family.
With nothing to worry about, we have time to just spend together as a family.
Me and two of my brothers spent the day in Downtown Disney outside of Disneyland. We shopped and walked around, just checking out the stores.
We even shared a massive foot-long hot dog!
I’m having fun hanging out with my new family in California, and I know I’ll cherish the memories we will make. I thank God for giving me two new people in my family!Follow WeTheCommoners Blog on WordPress.com
