Welcome Corinne

For the fourth time, I am a godfather. This one was a little different (well, they've all been different...) as I wasn't actually there. The father's brother was my proxy, as the event took place in Manitoba while I was still in Rome. The ceremony was in both French and English.

Of my four godchildren, the oldest is my nephew, John; he turns 41 in August, lives in Florida, and has a passion for sailing and surfing (and a day job at Enterprise). The second, Ben, is 27 next month, and is principal of a high-powered charter high school in math and science in New Orleans. The third, Imani, turns 7 in September; she lives in London with her parents. The latest, Corinne, is the daughter of the son of friends of mine from high school. Two boys, two girls; several countries (the eight parents involved include four born in the US, two born in England, one from Pakistan, one from Canada) and multiple languages.

All of them utterly wonderful.

I am especially tickled with the prospect of someone new I can send more copies of all my favorite kids' books!
