The Boston Marathon bombings affected us all, triggering both fear and fierce pride.
Whit started playing Little League for the first year. His team, the Giants, had an undistinguished record but a whole lot of heart.
We had a great day at Plimouth Plantation on Memorial Day.
We marked the end of second and fourth grades, and I took the children on a surprise trip to Canobie Lake Park to celebrate the first day of summer.
Over a weekend in June we celebrated my father’s birthday, with his wife, both of his children and all four of his grandchildren around a table.
My favorite post: Inheritance
My favorite quote:
Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.
Just keep going. No feeling is final.
Don’t let yourself lose me.
Nearby is the country they call life.
You will know it by its seriousness.
Give me your hand.
– Rainer Maria Rilke
