That Miles is quite the multisport athlete! He played lacrosse and whiffle ball and finally basketball with Jack. Here they are working on the fine motor coordination involved in dribbling a basketball. Luckily, Jack is enjoying the journey because at this rate, the dribbling journey is going to be a long one!

is what's causing him to smile so broadly.
We were at my 20 year Law School reunion at the University of Virginia. For the kids, they had set up a big Moon Bounce and an inflated slide that was about 20 feet tall and has a pretty steep slide. This is Jack at the bottom of the slide after the first of many trips down!

He senses her joy and feeds on it. In a flash, he will be skipping around the garden, ready at a moment's notice to fling himself into her arms again.
One day, Grandma Ruth and Grandpa Ray came to town. We all decided to go down to the Building Museum, which is always fun. On this day, the building was being used by the National Craft Fare (which is not nearly as horrendous as it might sound; quite the opposite - cool crafty things made by master artisans. Not a rug with dogs playing poker in sight). So we headed to the second floor with all the other urban parents with children. We found this empty suite of rooms. It apparently belonged to the building manager back in the day when the building was used for the War Pension fund (as in Civil War . . . .).
Jack saw it as a huge set of carpeted rooms where he could RUN...... This picture captures his first entrance into this magical land...
So, I know this is Jack's blog. But Jack's world is rapidly expanding. This is one of Jack's bestie's, Evan. In the years to come, we expect to spend many fun times with Evan (and his parents Sarah and Tim).
What a good looking kid that Evan is. Personally, I think Ralph Lauren should be using him for his summer catalog!
