FOR the last several summers, we’ve been blessed to be able to assemble the whole Stone clan for a week at the beach (Edisto, SC, this past June). It’s so wonderful having all 14 of us together! Actually, it was 15 of us this summer: Jesse and Adam are fostercaring two-year-old Teaghan (center in the dining photo below) as well parenting their pair.
