three-quarters of george washington’s head

Hi there, intertubes! How’re you? We’re fine here, just back from our nearly-end-of-summer beach week. Yes, things are fairly chaotic in a house containing 3 six yr olds, 1 two yr old and 1 six mo old, thanks for asking! Despite the noise level, good times were had by all. While there were some disappointments (crab cakes that were more cake than crab, no clothesline at the rental house), they were more than offset by the good stuff (amazing weather, steamed clams, toasted waffles w/vanilla ice cream). And I managed to read 2 books. And I won at Carcassonne: fear my massive misshapen city, w00t!

Thankfully we have tomorrow to recover + to do all the laundry. Monday morning it’s off to camp for Gus again, poor kid. Though he did make a new friend this year who will also be doomed to camp for the last week of the summer. Plus they are swimming every day next week, so I don’t feel that bad for him.

And it’s back to work for me, where summer is over: the fall semester starts this week, eek!

That’s funny — *my* kid made a new friend at day camp this year, too. Some kid named Gus…

Hi Dan, Gus was really happy to hang out with your boys all summer. Once the dust has settled a bit on the beginning of school, I’m sure Gus would love to have them over for a playdate if you’re all up for it. Feel free to drop us a line!
