June 2018

It's almost summer! Today Robert and I have been married twenty years, and on Friday Marcus finishes fourth grade and Samantha finishes kindergarten. How have we been keeping busy?


Baseball--his team is now in the playoffs, and Marcus has improved enough that he is now one of his team's strongest hitters! At left, Marcus as catcher; center, he walked out to the mound to say encouraging things to the pitcher, who was having a tough time that game; right, post-game pep talk with Coach Nando.

Biking and bikeathon--10 miles! Marcus rode all 10 on his own, really helpfully riding in front of us and scouting out the markings ont he road; Samantha rode all but one mile in the middle because she was exhausted from 4 miles of hills (who had any idea West Roxbury had so many hills? I sure didn't), but she got back on her bike after the rest stop and rode all the way home with a great attitude. Helen was just a passenger for the bikeathon, but she's learning to use her little balance bike at home.
