Lucky Seven Family

Cape Cod 2019

It’s our annual summer vaca and we are spending the week in Cape Cod, Orleans to be exact.

We’ve been LuckySevenFamily for almost 10 years! (August 17, 2019 is officially the start of US!).  Last night, while sitting around our blazing fire pit, making S’mores, catching frogs, “breaking” the hammock, and laughing a ton, we reminisced about our “where will you be in 10 years?” game.  We’ve been doing this at family dinners and get-togethers for almost 10 years.  When I suggested it last night, I quickly realized that almost 10 years ago, each kid was predicting where they would be in  10 years and now we are living those predictions! MIND BLOWN

We now have two in college, a sophomore and a freshman.  The sophomore at Babson studying business and the freshman starting at Northeastern Univ to study business as well; starting his college life in Rome via the #NUin program! We also have a senior and sophomore in high school and round it out with an 8th grader.  Crazy stuff! How did that happen??!!

Their laughter is a beautiful song.  Their evolving maturity about the world and their openness with one another about their lives are gifts to any parent.  As I watch them, I smile and look forward to many more years of “where will you be in 10 years?”#luckysevenfamily #love #stepmom #stepdad

S’mores!

building family traditions
growing together
Halloween parties!
being step-parents
children being step-children
interacting with ex-wife/ex-husband
birth order and how it affects our relationships
