Our family is leaving the Merrimack Valley for the South Shore, specifically the great city of Brockton, population 100,000. It's south of Boston and Kara's hometown. Her brother Anthony and his wife Lisa are generously allowing us to live in their second floor apt. on North Main Street. Jason will take a 25 minute train ride to work in Boston. Kara gets to be with her family during the day. It's a good all around move. Brockton is called the "City of Champions" because, in part, two boxing champs come from there: Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler.
