After ten intense days of beaches, fun, chaos, joyful reunions, sad partings, "camping" at my parents', where there was no less than fifteen extra bodies—including uncles, aunts, cousins, beloved old friends and their babies...after ice cream cones, raspberry picking, first swimming experiences, loose teeth, near-drowing experiences (yes, in the plural....And do you think it slowed him down?)....we are home for a little rest.

Thank you and goodbye to all our dear ones departing for distant coasts. Thank you for all the love. We keep you in our hearts.
