MFSIL: Icing on the Cake

It's sad to see this wonderful summer come to an end. (I'll start teaching again on Monday.) But this week provided icing on the summer cake, so to speak. My favorite sister-in-law (MFSIL, for short), Mary Stromquist, came to visit from the Philadelphia area and we had a great time.

I am Mary's FSIL, too. And her daughter, Susan, is MFN. I'm Susan's FA. These special designations started long ago when none of us actually had any other sisters-in-law, nieces, or aunts. Our families have grown, but the nicknames remain. I like that.
