It would have been more symmetrical if this happened next month, on my five year anniversary of the date I joined, but today I officially resigned from Microsoft.

This is the introduction to a story she started writing. Kate says that this reads “Introducing My Unicorn”, but […]

Back to School 2016!

September 12, 2016 Jonah

School started what seemed like pretty late this year, especially when we started seeing back-to-school posts on Facebook in early August. Kate started 4th grade, Owen started 7th grade and Jonah started 8th grade. Next year will be the hellish year of three kids in three different schools, but for the moment the boys are […]

“We’ve” Been Working on the Patio

July 7, 2016 Eddy

One of the many things that “we” planned to do for our new house was redo the patio. “We” had a ton of work ahead of us…literally. After many hours spent pacing the backyard, we decided on a casual look. We had originally wanted to have a more curved edge, but as that would have involved […]
