Day 19: Siblings
|Top of some cliff in VA|
I have 3 siblings; 2 younger sisters and a much older half brother. My half-brother is almost 17 years older than me and so has been a wonderful if sporadic presence in my life. Most recently he thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail the summer of 2010 and 2011, and both times came off the trail by me in Pennsylvania to make use of our shower, washer & dryer and catch-up on life.
My sisters and I have had the usual ~ fought our way thru childhood, become good friends in adulthood relationship. They both live in VA within a miles of each other and have 2 and 3 kids respectively. Charlie has one sister with whom I also have a good relationship. She and her husband have two kids, one of whom is only 9 days younger than Lisbeth; they live in MA but the sister/cousins have a blast whenever we are able to all get together.
