it is my brother ragan's birthday today. ragan is one of the most adventurous people i know. (well, really, i like to think of all of us lybbert kids as adventurous, myself included. but ragan definitely is one of the most adventurous of us.) whether it is a road trip to alaska, or a trip back to chile, or boating at 5 in the morning, ragan is always up for fun, adventuresome times. also, he is a very caring genuine person. he is always making an effort to do special things for the people he cares about, and that is one quality i would like to develop a little bit more. so here's to you, little bro!! i hope your birthday is everything you hoped it would be and more, and that the bus ride to anchorage isn't too terribly painful.
