Family Update

Naturally Curious readers who have followed my intermittent family posts over the years have been incredibly supportive of my daughter Sadie and her two little ones, Otis (6) and Lily Piper (3).  I have received numerous inquiries about them recently and thought I would share a recent photo of them with you.  They are well (Lily Piper has survived swallowing five potentially harmful magnetic buckyballs and a broken leg in her three short years) and Otis is (somewhat naturally) curious beyond belief and a lover of all things robotic.  I want to express my continued gratitude for the support many of you provided in their behalf four years ago.

A wonderful holiday season to all Naturally Curious followers. In order to fully enjoy these munchkins as well as my dear sister and friends I will be on a short hiatus over Christmas and New Year’s. May 2022 be kind to us all.
