A trip to Vancouver

Guest Blog from the Brother.

I have asked Kyla and Rob to each do a guest blog on what they learned over the course of our 30 day "get to know each other better" challenge.  Today is brother's turn.  Also, brother has started to blog and I'm sure anyone who reads is garaunteed a good laugh. The kid is all over the map. In a good way.  http://www.robjamespark.blogspot.com/
Tomorrow will be sister's guestblogtime, which also happens to be her birthday.  

Do blogs need titles?

First blog, start date: March 2nd , 2011.

This will be my first attempt at a blog. I have tried many times to do a daily journal; all with the same result: A fragmented mash of my thoughts spread erratically on paper. But finally a blog with a direct purpose: To write what I have learned about my sisters on this epic journey of 30 deep and sometimes divine questions. What began as my sister's attempt to help me with my never-ending slew of dating mishaps, led into something completely different, getting to know the little things that make my sisters tick. The easy questions like favorite movies and songs weren’t completely surprising, what was surprising was how much I began to look forward to the daily email from Deena and Kyla. One question asked us to write a thank you letter to someone who has changed your life. Kyla’s quote really struck an emotional nerve for me. It’s easy for me to say I love my sisters, but reading what they have put thought and emotion into really hits that deep down unconditional love feeling.

"To the outside world, we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time."

When I was younger I wasn’t able to understand the true bond of family. It’s only now that I’m older, and much wiser and mature ;) that I begin to cherish what we have as brothers and sisters. It’s a renewal of kinship. In a couple of months we leave for Scotland and I have never been so excited.
