Classes began today

Jacy had a chemistry class and Tom had a computer science class and a calculus class. They both will have busier schedules tomorrow. Jacy will come home after classes with Tom tomorrow evening.

On Monday night Jacy went to "Cousins' Dinner Night Out" with Kira, Page, Kelli, and Robert. Missing were Tom, Karin, Rob, and Ryan - and Oliver, who should be included because he is the fiance of a cousin. Regular get-togethers of the cousins attending Auburn was the brain-child of Helen, who suggested it to Kira when the family was together last Christmas. When my generation of cousins was coming along, five of us went to Auburn at the same time (or close enough) and three of us also married other Auburn students. We'd pass one another on campus from time to time, but none of us ever thought to try to get together with any regularity. (And Helen and Sumner were the only cousins who did not go to Auburn.)

Now this generation of cousins has seven currently enrolled at Auburn, and one (Kira) newly graduated, but still in the area. Add Karin and Oliver and it makes a possible group of ten that will try to meet at a specific deli on the first Monday of each month for supper. Sometimes the group will be smaller; sometimes it will be larger. Hopefully they'll manage to see one another often enough that they can enjoy the family ties that bind them together.

How neat to have so many cousins going to the same school at the same time.

My collegians start class next Wed 8/22, but they're not at Auburn. Had cousins who went there and an uncle who taught there yeas ago.

War Eagle! That really would be great to go to the same school with so many cousins.
