The best part, he's my Step-son, Shapleigh Smith Jr!
Last week I attended Shap's swearing in at the Vermont State House. I was accompanied by my Husband, Shap Smith Sr, my other Step-son Chapman, along with Shap Jr's wife Melissa and children, Eli and Mia and his half brother Spenser Weppler. Listening on the radio were: Michel and Stuart Weppler (Shap Jr's Mother and Step-father), his step-siblings McKee and Maggie Macdonald and half-brother Coulter.
Gathering together with the mishmash clan we call family, to mark this momentous event, made me realize just how great an accomplishment it was. We are all so proud of Shap, he's had a goal of being successful in politics since his youth and he's managed to do just that!
Congrats Shap, we are all so proud of you.
