The factual version
We Boyds took our longest-ever roadtrip: 1,300 miles to Washington, DC. We stopped at Ann’s favorite ice-cream store [Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, in both Columbus and Chagrin Falls, Ohio], where she tasted fourteen flavors. Jon fills the commute to his new InterVarsity Press job with audiobooks. Lucy, age 6, lost two teeth but refuses to give them to the Tooth Fairy. Rosie, age 4, loves to sing, dance, and write words all by herself.
We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
