Front Porch

My next door neighbors Matthew, Julia, and Bethy (Elizabeth), are consistently excited to see Chris and I whenever we are both outside. We have received leaf raking assistance from all three, been told countless stories about what books they are reading and have been asked repeatedly when they are coming over to our house for dinner. Matthew, who is seven, is in remission from adrenoleukodystrophy (the disease from "Lorenzo's Oil"). He was diagnosed two years ago with it and has had treatment at the mayo clinic in Minnesota where, as he tells us, he got to stay and the Ronald McDonald House.
