Both of our boys have traveled half way around the world in recent weeks. Christopher (Kit) is home on leave from Germany--a month of free time after spending 14 months in Iraq as an army medic. 

Daniel headed off across the Pacific Ocean to Vietnam, where he's been visiting his Internet friend Tien and sightseeing in Saigon, Hanoi, and Ha Long Bay.

Julie and Jon have taken their 4 girls to Louisiana, a yearly trek to see Jon's grandparents. They paddle around the bayous, swim, play games in the cool of the evening, and stay in the shade during the heat of the day.

George and I are busy at our usual jobs, plus enjoying Christopher's presence at home. We're planning a trip into the mountains soon.

My mother has nice, predictable, peaceful days in her downstairs apartment.

We're all glad to have lots of moisture and greenery, but we'd like it to get warmer, since it is June already.

Our 2 cats, Smash and Punkin, keep us entertained. Actually, our grey cat is named Smudge, but George keeps saying "Smash, er, Smush, or whoever you are!" so we sometimes call her Smash.
