And it has started

Soccer season officially starts next weekend. Alex is playing on two teams. The rest are just playing on one team each. Dave is coaching 3 of the 5 teams. My job is kid switch at practice one night a week and chauffeuring and texting game updates on the weekend.

19th Anniversary

On top of the White Tower in Thessaloniki, Greece

Having had two sets of grandparents who were married for more than 50 years, 19 years seems like a short time. But this week I heard of yet another friend whose marriage is ending. That is five friends in less than a year. Now, I have no problem with people getting divorced. Really, I don't. But it does make these 19 years seem like more of an achievement.

My parents share our anniversary. (They, too, got married and left for grad school the next week.) This year is 47 for them. That is amazing.
