Thanksgiving ’12

We had a lovely trip to Colorado! I only wish we could have stayed longer, and that I had all of my schoolwork done before we left. Unfortunately, now I am 5 days behind, 5 pounds heavier, severely sleep-deprived, and homesick. These all seem to go along with Thanksgiving celebrations most years.

As we basked in the grandeur of technology, I pondered aloud about how many books could be contained within 3 terabytes of memory. We ventured some educated guesses about the libraries of text it could hold, but Avey’s response put it all in context; She stated plainly, “Well, I can hold about four [books].”  Ah, I dare say no amount of computer memory will ever be a match for the wit and humor of a 5-year-old.
