Well, we had a really special weekend with all our kids home, and our extended set of kids as well :)
Giles and Tia said goodbye at noon to head back to New York. She went for a run with me this morning--the day before we all went on a big hike--and the day before that everyone went on a long walk that ended with a stiff climb up our mountain. She remarked that she's feeling really healthy now!
Sigh. The house is a lot quieter now that we've lost five young adults. However, the groceries should last a lot longer.
