  • U of M Ski Trip to Vail – 2024

    U of M Ski Trip to Vail – 2024


    Had another super fun trip to Vail with the Michigan crew. We were missing a few team members, but those who made it went as hard as they could, which means slow and steady. The snow was great and we covered the entire mountain. Durbin and Allard finally broke their winning streak. I’m not sure…

    East Coast College Touring


    We explored a few new cities/college towns while we were on the east coast before Thanksgiving. We enjoyed all of them and the campuses were impressive in their own way. The highlight was a too-brief lunch with the Milano-Sessines in New Haven.

    The kids had a long weekend, so we went up to Seattle for a quick trip explore the city and visit UW. Besides Grace, this was our first time visiting Seattle (it has long been on my list). Everyone we saw told us how lucky we were about the weather, which is suspicious because it…

    We’re technically on our annual summer trip to Michigan. However, while we were nearby, we took a quick day-and-a-half trip to Chicago to see a couple schools.
