All is quiet and hot. It hit about 167° in Portland today. We put Katie in her new kiddie pool on the deck. It took her a while to understand it was not a torture device, and eventually she stopped screaming. Mommy and Daddy enjoyed it much more. Scout thought the pool was WAY too much like the dreaded bathtub, but she did hop in voluntarily. Once.
We had a fun couple of days with Sonya and her family this past weekend in Seattle. They're home for about six weeks before they head off to Belgium so we're trying to get lots of time in with them. In fact, this month is busy busy busy with lots of visits and visitors planned.
I'm keeping even more busy with contract work. Among other projects, I'm developing courseware and teaching classes in the Lake Oswego School District. If you're in the Portland area and are interested in taking great 3-hour classes for only $30, check out the schedule. E-mail me if you have any questions.
Victor? He's just happy to be married to me.
We're looking forward to our first "big" trip since last fall... just got tickets to go to Las Vegas in September. The Voss Crime Family is meeting us there. Katie will be staying home with Grandma and Grandpa. No plans on where we're staying or what we're doing, but it will have been a year and a half since our last visit to Vegas so we've got some new hotels to visit and money to lose. I'm dragging Kath on the New York New York roller coaster with me, although this time will have a bar of soap to clean out her mouth at the end. Last time she said many baaaad words! Ron just can't wait to see Siegfried and Roid.
I've made some changes on the site... this page, for one. There's a new message board too. I bet I know who'll be first to try it out! New pics of Katie can be seen here.
That's it for now.
