It has been such a long time since I've posted...so here are an array of photos of the children.
In the first one, in Perugia last summer, the children are basically gritting their teeth and teasing me under their breath...but at least I got my NY card photo!
So much to catch up on...

During 2016, we've done a bit of traveling and just enjoying life.
One not-so-fun event was Graham's emergency appendectomy in April--poor guy. Missed his own birthday party, spent a night in the hospital, and -- his favorite part -- spent a week away from school.
He was such an impressive patient, and received amazing care at Georgetown Hospital. When asked if he had any questions--what I took as a formality, and something the doctors didn't expect Graham to answer--Graham said: "What is the recovery time for this particular surgery?"
Forever a physician's son.
In June, we headed out to Aunt Annie's in LA, where we spent time in her gorgeous garden (photos to come), at Disneyland (where I feel I'm still recovering from Hyper Space Mountain), Santa Monica (Lovely little hotel at the beach, the Standard), and Zuma Beach and...a meal at one of my favorite fish restaurants from way back when, The Reel Inn.
I miss California, the beach, the mountains. DC is 'real life' in a bubble--all of this hot political air swirling around, going nowhere, and just creating unnecessary tension.
Something about the Pacific air blowing off the ocean truly chills one out in California.
