While Geo spent the afternoon going out to the west suburbs to visit a former student, Cindy and I spent time at the Lake Michigan beach with our kids. Warm sunny skies and soft sand made it a great day.
Tomorrow we are off for a 13-hour drive to VA. It will be good to plow through and just get there. So good to spend these few days with my good friend. I think it is so crucial to keep ties with people who have known you a long time (in this case 27 years, since we roomed together at BYU).
