The Semi-Happy Marriage

As we get ready to celebrate 15 years of marriage next month, I found this interview (see link below) with  Pamela Haag, author of Marriage Confidential, quite intriguing and had to stop everything to share it with you.  I love it when I receive leads from our Chocolate Chip family so keep them coming!  Thanks Cyril for sharing!   

Raising children, balancing career and family and managing all our other responsibilities and interests are a huge challenge.  With the troubling economic environment and the pressure to keep it all together, it's easy to focus less on our marital relationship while managing the other storms and challenges in our lives.  Even in those season we have to come back to ensure we don't take advantage of our spouses and become complacent in our marriages.  We all deserve more than that. 

Pamela Haag is quite courageous to write on such a private and sensitive subject which really challenges all of us to raise the bar and give our best in our marriages.  I applaud her for her efforts.  I just pre-ordered it on ibooks and look forward to checking it out.

Choolate Chip Pee Wee Golf

Our pee wee golfers were out in full swing this afternoon! This special parent/child class introduces 4-6 year olds to golf while preparing mom and dad to coach their kids in the fundamentals of the sport.

Putting was the focus this week. Check out our son Ryan (of course in the Rondo jersey) and his BFF as they learn the proper way to hold the putter. Everyone will get to put their skills to work next week during the mini golf challenge! 

Special shout out to the Chocolate Chip families that joined us today for the kick off of the 2011 season.
