This Tuesday was a big day for our family: Seth and Jessica both got Irish citizenship!

We went up to Dublin as a family to attend an official ceremony where the citizenship was given. The ceremony included roughly 700 people from all corners of the world, and while we were there we met an Evangelical Christian from India and an Easter Spiritualist author from Virginia. We also heard the Garda (police) band play some wonderful Irish music, but they caught everyone off guard when they opened the ceremony by playing YMCA! On the way back to Youghal, it felt different to look out the window and realise that the rolling green hills all around are homeland to us now!
