Well, I got "off-schedule" last week because of the read-a-thon, and as my parents are coming up later this week, I may find myself off-schedule again. But I'll give it a go. So, what went on in our lives last week?
*For Annie and I, the read-a-thon dominated the week. From preparation to participation to recovering. Not sure the recovering is quite complete yet. We both had a fabulous time, got a lot of great reading done, and earned some money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
*Rich, Gray, and Max headed off on a boys' weekend. And, according to one and all, had a wonderful time. Rich taught his Friday morning class, picked the boys up early from school, and then they headed off for coastal Maine. They arrived Friday evening, hit the beach in the morning, then headed down to New Hampshire to visit a tidal pool.
*Max has learned to ride his bike! (Unfortunately, he caught us all off guard and no one had the camera.)
*Lucky continues making himself at home. His craziness is growing by leaps and bounds, literally and figuratively. One hour he's waking you by attacking your feet, the next hour he's waking you by rubbing his face against yours in order to get some pets. Even Aldo has fully excepted him now.
*Our glorious Indian summer has come to an end, and our lows are back to the 30s (and a few times upper 20s). I know it's that time of year, but somehow it just feels too early.
*Penn State is continuing to keep us happy! Of course, this week will be their real test.
