The kids are at their new school today and I am back online. I haven't even turned the 'puter on since Monday and as a result my inbox is stuffed to the gills. It has been a great couple of days. Yesterday was a picnic at the park that included a stone skipping contest that I lost badly and then we were off to see Harry Potter. I'm tired and broke but incredibly happy. Andre works for the government and I know that if the government needs him somewhere else they will be off again. It is hard to be separated but I am proud of Andre's service and thankful that my daughter and grandchildren have such a wonderful man in their lives. For the foreseeable future they'll be home and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.
P.S. Jeremy caught a fish in the canal that runs behind their house. I have been informed that from now on Friday nights are "fish fry" night. I love catching them, don't mind cleaning them, but I hate eating them. Oh well, it is nice to see traditions from my youth repeated.
