On Sunday we drove to the big city for a BBQ with friends from long ago. Many of those attending were former students of my husband’s who are now in fact tenured professors themselves. It was heartwarming to gather together with them, and their families. There was a ping pong tournament with the twin daughters of one former student, a jam session with two of the guys in which one “child” (over 200 pounds!) also participated. Where did the time go?
One of the “boys” joins in.Some Daddies with their kids… Some Mommies too. Later I asked to see the “mommy den”. This came in two parts, Mommy the carpenter who built their new kitchen,and Mommy the seemstress’s area. This particular Mommy is also a computer science professor.How wonderful it is to see everyone doing so well…and how proud DH is to be a part of it all!
