Reid and Laura Keally Heywood celebrated their 20th anniversary with a safari trip to South Africa, “which was awesome. Not having to think about making meals for a week was amazing and the animals were pretty cool too.” Even better, their three kids, Ella, 13, Ned, 11, and Madison, 9, barely seemed to notice they were gone. Laura’s in her second year managing her husband’s OB/GYN practice on Cape Cod, which has been a balancing act but she enjoys it and isn’t sure how so many working moms make it look easy. Last winter Laura saw the Rubin family—Kim (Kessler), Zach, Emily, and Josh—and their new house in Maine and their two new pound puppies. Laura’s family is also getting a new puppy, a German shorthaired pointer. * Missy Fraser Gramer met up with Barbara Coulon, Kerry Sheehy Ward, Brooke Porteous Skulley, and Marika Schwartzman Bruell for a girls’ weekend at her home in Sugarbush, Vt. Hiking, a farmer’s market, flatbread pizza, and massages were on the agenda. Missy left behind her almost high schooler and her twin boys, 9, who are avid baseball players. Barbara has a little girl who is two, Kerry and Brooke each have two children, and Marika has a little boy. All the dads were in charge and survived! Missy took her family on a road trip through Arizona for spring break—her children were in awe of the landscape, especially the Grand Canyon. * Sue Benson Panilaitis writes that her husband, Bruce Panilaitis, recently became senior research administrator for Tufts University, officially changing from faculty to staff. He’s also chair of the Town of Tewksbury selectmen. Sue continues to teach in the Lowell public schools, and on the weekends serves as director of religious education at Tewksbury Congregational Church. This spring they began fostering another child—a 10-year-old boy—raising their total to seven sons (ages 8-21). They celebrated 20 years of marriage in August. * Jonathan Kaplan’s big news for 2016 is that they moved to a new house, still in Washington but farther away from the bright lights and hipster-centric Logan Circle neighborhood. There’s more room for their growing 3-year-old son. In April Colby held an event in DC for Professor Cal Mackenzie, who retired after 38 years, and Jonathan was honored that Cal asked him to moderate the discussion. He says it was quite moving to see so many alumni at the event. Jonathan still works at the Open Society Foundations and feels great nearly three years after having some of his ascending aorta replaced (better than he did at the 20th reunion, which was only six months after the surgery). * Marina Grande Netto Campos lives in São Paulo, Brazil, with her husband, Rafael Campos, and her daughters, 12 and 6. Over New Year’s she met up with Julie Ackerman Kaeli and her family at Marina’s house in Orlando. Marina is the global head at Teleperformance, a leader in outsourcing omnichannel customer experience management, for the strategic sales support and CX lab areas. She travels to the U.S. and Portugal quite a bit for work. * Congratulations to Andie Sulak Bombard and her husband who had a baby May 6, Jacqueline Bombard. “We’re calling her Jax—we think it sounds like a name for an awesome ski racer.” Agreed! * Scott Kadish writes from Westborough, Mass., where he’s lived for two years with his wife, Stacey, daughters Cassie, 14, and Daphnie, 12, and dog Gilligan. Daphnie goes to Mill Pond School in Westborough where Andrea Bowman Rogers is a teacher. Earlier this year they were at a dinner sponsored by their temple and saw Marile Haylon Borden and her husband. Scott’s family went to San Francisco this summer so his daughter could play in the Baseball for All tournament. Billed as a tournament “for girls who love baseball,” around 200 girls aged 8-16 participated in a week of baseball a la A League of their Own.
