(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!

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!

And here he is opening the Big Present. The really exciting one, from Granny and Paba.
And Katie decorated his cake. Beautiful, eh? Travis was effusive in his praise.
The beautiful new monitor, in action. Travis now has three monitors on his desk -- one for the Minecraft server, the one on the laptop, and now the beautiful new one with amazing resolution. He had set them up so that the new one is an external monitor and he can drag and drop files and view them on either screen. Pandachute looks pretty fabulous on the new screen!
