All Good Things...

On August 4th, 2010, nearly 4 and 1/2 years to the day (Feb, 5, 2010) Addy made her inaugural trip to Wrigley Field. From the day Addy was born and we decided on the name Addison Clark Ritner, I have looked forward to taking her to her first game so she could stand on the corner of Addison and Clark and feel like there was a part of her Mom and Dad's love for Chicago in her life. Even when we created this blog, Life at the Intersection, I was foreshadowing our eventual trip to Wrigley.

With her passing that milestone and Jackson having just turned two, we think this is a good time to sign off from the family blog. Blogger.com is very time intensive to upload to and Facebook has just become more a part of our everyday online life. We will keep uploading pics of the family and even videos there.

If you are not already friends with us online, please find us and friend us:
I will warn you, Kristyn only accepts friends from Chicago...it is her way of not having to be Mrs. Reverend Ritner online. Nearly 1/2 of my friends are Chapel people.

Thanks for sharing in our lives online for the past 1,650 days!

Like Father, Like Son (while thinking of Grandpa Gary!)

Jax and I watching the third round of the British open from St. Andrews. Jax likes to tell me everytime someone swings, "Dad! They hit the ball!!"

Fireman Fred



The French students toured the Firestation, so the family tagged along. Kristyn always jokes that if I die, she is going to marry a Fireman in NYC. So this picture was just too funny to pass up.

Friends from France

Our French guests, Lea and Solenne, taking a walk with the family. There are with us for 12 days on an exchange program.
