Welcome to our Chouinard Family Blog. Now that Emily has a digital camera (thanks, Dad and Phyllis!), we’re ready to enter the 21st century. We hope to post pictures and stories a few times each week. Thanks, Gary, for leading the way on this. We’re really excited to “shorten the distance” between the East Coast and the West Coast through this blog. Tomorrow, the kids and I will post more pictures and stories of Joel’s sixth birthday. Love to you all, and can’t wait to see our California relatives in another week (or two).
