Ben and I welcomed our son, Philip, on March 27, and had a terrific spring and summer together. Fall brought the beginning of a challenging school year teaching Latin at Needham High School. A nice distraction came at the end of October with the visit of good friend, Annette Grew ’98 and her family. We had a terrific time in Boston during Halloween taking in the elaborate decorations on Beacon Hill. School is still very busy as I attempt to teach, mentor and plan a trip to Rome in April but would gladly welcome a respite from all that in the form of a visit from friends!
