They quickly became some of our favorite people.
This month, the Haselswerdts relocated to Ann Arbor, where Jake has accepted a two-year fellowship at the University of Michigan. After that, it's off to Missouri where he'll be a professor at Mizzou. But before a new chapter can open, an old one must close. Jen, Jake and Mickey didn't want to leave without saying goodbye.
For most, goodbyes are long, drawn-out, sad occasions that leave everyone in tears. But not for this family. Jen and Jake let Mickey take the lead and pick all of the places he wanted to visit one last time. We spent a Friday evening together playing at Bullis Park, jumping in the foundation in Downtown Silver Spring, watching the tortilla machine at Mi Rancho and sipping milk shakes at Tastee Diner. Clearly, this kid's got taste!
