Reconnecting The Lopez Tribe

It seems like every time the Messimer's and Grijalva's get together, someone asks the question, "What's going on with the rest of the family?"

Between the size of the extended Lopez Tribe, the expanse of geography we occupy, and the sometimes frantic and always hectic pace of life, we seem to only be able to group-up for occasional reunions, and the inevidable end-of-life celebrations.

But how we have The Web. Maybe we can fill in the gaps between family events to stay in touch and connected.

We all share the blessing of a common family bond, bestowed upon us by Gregorio and Augustina. Their dedication to, and love of family should not be neglected.

So let us know what you're up to these days. Tell us about family happenings and accomplishments. Post a picture or video of the family so we can all see how well we've all aged.

Most of all...let's reconnect.

Greetings to all Lopez-clan Bloggers, and their non-blogging family members. I am not a Blogger, but after receiving the invite, felt compelled to give it a shot.

All is well with the Salas clan here in SD. Everybody is healthy and the family is well.
Recent news?
Maria's daughters just took first place CIF for doubles in tennis. Elena is a Jr and Sophia is a freshman. They are terrific kids and they acquired Maria's competitive gene.
Charlene (my wife) and I have two in college. Greg is in his first yr at Cal Poly - SLO. Brit is in her second yr at UCSB. My two older ones are married (no kids yet) and we still have one in high school.
Our photo of Nana sets above the tv and I reflect often upon our quiet Matriarch.
And yes, it is all too often that we talk, let alone see one and other. I speak to Cousin Chuck about biz and ask after the clan, but it is indeed a weak substitute for a shared smile, memory and adult beverage.
Greetings to all.
