hot hot hot....

Me, Margaret (Back from Norway!!!!), Charlotte Claire in front of Kathryn, Jonathan, Suzanne, and Miss Camille in front...we went out and about yesterday. Evelyn so nicely stayed home with Sonja K., who is recovering nicely. hot hot. Hot and humid. I stayed in the pool for an hour and a half. And I am headed back in soon. Ashley came over to visit with Anya...they are going back to Washington state in a few days, wah. It's been so nice to see them. As they were leaving last evening, Ashley mentioned being sorry about all the toys being out, and I said, "Oh my goodness Ashley, I've been waiting for years now for grandchildren to come over and play with these toys!"

It's so nice. Anya likes the little slide, and she likes to scan toys with the plastic cash register. :)

Abigail comes home from Norway tomorrow late tonight, Emily is picking her up from New York city this evening.

Tomorrow night we are working a concert, I hope we don't melt.

I am back to my pre-vacation weight, again. I gained a little bit at the summer conference, but lost it again, phew. I am trying hard to stay on the straight and narrow, because I am leaving on Monday morning for California, and I think maybe we might have to try a local donut or two while we're there.

And...there are kids here (nine at home again!), and the Olympics are bye for now.

Where in California will you be...I can suggest a few Donut shops that are definitely worth trying

Aaron lives near San Francisco, I'm not sure the exact neighborhood, but right on the bay.

Have fun in Cali and enjoy a donut for me!
