Harrison flies away from home

Charles, Harrison and Erica

This photo makes me so happy, I could dance the watusi.  Look how joyous they are.  Life just doesn't get better than this.  Harrison is on his way to the MTC in Buenos Aires for six weeks and then onto Montevideo, Uruguay for two years. He's a missionary.  It's a rite of passage.  It's stunning to an old woman to see this repeated in the family and to realize that it matters.

As for the watusi, I used to dance it in my living room to Petula Clark's, "Downtown."  I danced it for Jonathan when he was one and sitting in his little bouncy seat waving his arms to the music.  Who can sit still to "Downtown"?  I'll dance it today for Harrison with a chaser of Excedrin.

Make the world a better place.  Dance the Watusi!
