Happy Father's Day

We spent father's day in Clearwater, Florida, at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of dolphins Winter and Hope from the movies Dolphin Tale and Dolphin Tale 2.  Hannah and the girls had lots of fun although it was quite hot.  It was a rewarding father's day for me because the girls were happy.

Today we also skyped with my father in the morning and called him and my mother when we got home (because they worry - and if your parents' still don't ask you to call them, you are missing out).  I love my father José Sokol very much.  He is kind, caring and very loving.  He worked hard all of his life to provide for us and instilled in us the importance of education, hard work and and giving back to the community - my mom did too but more on that for Mother's Day.  Both of my parents are my role models.  Hannah and I both hope to be as good to our girls as my parents are to me and my brother.  I should add that Hannah speaks more to my parents per day than I do.

For the first time (as a father's day present - he has always wanted to watch me), my father will hear me present at an antitrust conference. For those in DC and who plan to attend the World Bank conference Promoting Effective Competition Policies for Shared Prosperity and Inclusive Growth on Tuesday, you can meet him.
