10 YEARS

today was our 10 year anniversary. Paula and i hired a sitter and hit the town for a nice dinner and good conversation. it’s hard to believe we’ve been married for 10 years, but as i think back i can’t believe how much our lives have changed, most notably with Ellie and JD, but much else. 10 years ago i was finishing a Master’s degree and working at the KU Center for Research on Learning. Paula was working on her Ph.D. through the Center for Research on Learning (so, that likely explains how we met, eh?). We were renting a neat greenish house on Massachusetts Street not far from downtown. We soon bought a house on Cranley Street on the SE side of Lawrence. neither of us had any idea we’d end up in Michigan doing what we’re doing and here we are starting our 8th year at GVSU. that just blows my mind.

here’s to the next 10 years! CHEERS!
