John & Shari have four kids. The eldest of them is in FL, so we're missing Melissa this year. This morning, Shari picked up Daniel, a plebe in the Naval Academy, and they stopped by so we could see him in his uniform. Snaz-ZY! He cleans up good! Christy is a junior in high school. She drives now. And Tim is a freshman. He's only four months older than Emma, but he's a year ahead in school due to his summer birthday.
My kids only see these cousins once a year, so they're pretty excited about heading over tomorrow. And I love hanging out with Shari. She's a kindred spirit. You know, I really lucked out in the in-laws department. I often say that I couldn't have found a better mother-in-law if I would've met her first and then tried to marry one of her sons. She's a gem.
