Happy New Year from our home to yours. Life on Newark-Granville Road takes a literal approach to our holiday message. Simple updates on our family:
Clare- our junior is thinking about colleges. She says she wants small and is undecided on career path. She did enjoy seeing mid Atlantic small liberal art colleges this summer. Due to her busy sports schedule (field hockey, basketball and lacrosse) we'll make spring break our Midwest college tour time, trying to add something fun, like maybe a visit to Chicago?? Yes, she will apply to Denison but it really is too close to home. It is her journey and we're excited to support her efforts. She takes her studies very seriously, she won't leave class to meet with colleges when they visit her high school. Her Global Scholars track has peaked her interest in political science and international studies, but does well with math and science. Clare spent the summer of 2017 at Camp Alleghany and enjoying quality time with friends and family. Interesting times as she continplates what 2018 will bring- a family vacation without her?? Stay tuned to the blog to share the excitement the new year will bring.
Peter- our sophomore continues to enjoy being active. He and his friends started a business doing yard work, placing signs around town. We are grateful to those that put them to work! Summer included an extended stay in Hagerstown with Nana and Pap and skill building on the courts. 2017 took him from basketball to the pool, a contributing member of the GHS swim team. Mom is thrilled to be back at meets seeing a summer activity move to winter. 2018 has hopes for tennis team at GHS- the blog will share the scoop! He and Joe found time to hit the links and Peter even manged to beat him once.
Sally- made the big move to the middle school this year and is doing great. She joins her siblings in the car for 7:30 am departures. Field Hockey this fall was fun with our new neighbor joining Sally on bike rides to practises down NG Road at Bryn Du. Her winter sport is basketball and 2018 will bring more lacrosse. 2017 had quite a season with a big win at the Ohio Cup end of season tournament and Joe coaching. Sally enjoyed Camp Alleghany and quality time with family this summer. 2018 moves her into the teenage years.

We'd love to have you join us if ever interested.
We HOPE your new year will be filled with LOVE and PEACE. We HOPE to see you for our Kentucky Derby Party on May 5, 2018 4:30 pm start, post time for the 144th Run for the Roses is 6:34 pm. Hats encouraged...more details will be posted here in April!
