Today’s Photo of the Day is my beautiful niece, Heatherlyn Johnson Reamer, taken during her heartfelt speech at the meeting with TCAPS Superintendent Paula Soma to discuss the possible closing of Old Mission Peninsula School. Heather spoke about how the closing would impact Old Mission’s farming community, in which she is firmly embedded.
Heather is the daughter of my brother Dean Johnson and awesome sister-in-law Teri (Somerville) Johnson. I’m so darn proud of all her accomplishments over the years. How she’s jumped into the farming business headfirst (an industry historically a man’s realm, but that does not phase her one bit). How she never shirks from anything and runs straight at life headfirst. How she organizes things and hosts fantastic family dinners at the home she shares with husband Cory Reamer and kids Emma and James.

And how she’s such a force in the Old Mission community, including her work with the OMPS PTO through the years, and her presence on the Peninsula Community Library board. And a rockstar cellist, to boot (yes, I’m still thinking trio … quartet… somewhere down the line…?).
I love that we both have red hair, and that people think we’re sisters. I love how people call me “Heather” all the time (and half the time I don’t even correct them).
Heather, I’m so proud of you and so grateful to share this community, this family and this life with you. I love you!
