Family Ties

My time as a Harvard student is over. I turned in my exam and attended my last class. I enjoyed the subject and lively debate with my classmates. But the time involved and having to drive down every day was a challenge. I missed Keegan and I missed having down time. Meanwhile yesterday Jeff picked up Keegan from daycare, they played and went out to supper and ice cream. Bedtime was over by the time I fought my way home through traffic.
Now I get to spend the next three days with my two favorite guys. In an hour or so we are headed down to NJ for my annual family reunion. We are returning on Monday. Even though I hate the drive I love to roadtrip with Jeff so it should be fun. And I do like going to the reunion. They have been holding one for over a 100 years. This is Jeff's first time going and he is excited but that's because he doesn't know my family. Just kidding. Or not. I guess every family has their unique members. And there is always gossip and minor scandal. I thought I would be it last year because of my divorce but my teenage cousin with the new baby beat me.
