My Best Cousin

My best cousin, Hannah is in town this week presenting a paper at the U of A. If you don't have a best cousin, then I feel sorry for you. And if you don't have a best cousin like Hannah then I really feel sorry for you. A best cousin (a term coined by Carly John, I believe) is your corresponding cousin- you know, same age and gender. Hannah is a month older than me and also female, therefore she is my best cousin. But she's more than just a best cousin to me- she's a best friend, a best former roommate, and a best jumper in mid-air for funny photographs. When we were in high school together, I always felt awkward referring to her as my cousin because really she was just my friend. Fast forward 8 years and we can still enjoy an episode of America's Next Top Model like no one else. It's been fun having her around and seeing her play with my boys. Forget about Linguistics at Berkeley, Hannah should come get a degree in Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Arizona. She can teach Booker how to say 1, 2, 3 JUMP in Arabic. More photos here

Thanks for the photos. I was just wondering how your visit is going. Hannah you look incredible. What a jumper!

Aunt Diane from Betsy's computer. Those are the best pictures I've ever seen of my daughter. Thank you. I need hard copies. Who knew she had such a talent for photo jumping? And thanks for lending your baby to the jump. He looks a bit terrified. these pictures make me want to photo jump.

What a cute picture! Hannah sure looks like her Dad, doesn't she. How fun that you were able to have her visit.

Ps. How do you make the pictures in your posts so big?

A. I love how it looks like Booker is holding her down so she doesn't fly away.

B. I claim Hannah as a cousin too, and she pretty much rocks :)

I guess neither Clark nor I have best cousins then. Our closest is Cousin Christy, and she is 1) female, and 2) a couple years older than me. Ah, well.
