(Here's Katie on Saturday, when we picked her up. Unlike Travis's, her tan didn't wash off in the shower!)
And here the kids are up at church on Sunday, after loading up the cars. Oooh, I do miss them!
In which I discuss my family and other matters, both important and otherwise...

The house is quiet this week. Way too quiet.
When Travis is away we miss him terribly, but he is generally so silent and low maintenance that his absence doesn't significantly affect the conversation/noise level in the house. Katie, however, is quite chatty, and without her the house is silent as the tomb. The cats' snores are actually a comfort, though Travis, out of sympathy, is putting extra expressiveness into his "hmmm"s this week.
Speaking of Travis, his box of goodies from the E3 Convention, which he won in a sweepstakes, arrived today by FedEx. I had expected that he would get a t-shirt and maybe a poster or a couple of bumper stickers, but it actually turned out to be a very impressive haul! He's got it spread all over the dining room table, and I'm planning to let him keep it there -- he looks so darned happy, standing there caressing all his pretty video game merchandise!
