Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Gulp (posted by Ann)

He is too cute. I can't pick between pictures, he's just adorable! He is growing up so fast.

We had a busy weekend. Steve's cross-country season started on Saturday with a mock race, team meeting and picnic. All of this . . .

went inside all of these . . .

and Steve's team came in third.

Don was really busy too. We have an all-Swedish construction crew, other than Don, and they managed to get rafters up on Saturday. This part of the construction goes really fast!

Then on Sunday we went sailing and watched the air show from the water. It's really impressive to have a jet come screaming over you going a bazillion miles an hour (that's some technical jargon for you). It was a beautiful day, but it was what I would call lumpy out there. I asked the harbor tender driver what to expect and he whispered in my ear "It's a real puker out there." And it was - 6 foot seas on Lake Michigan feels really different from 6 foot seas in the Gulf of Mexico. In Lake Michigan, the period between wave crests is four seconds as opposed to twelve in the Gulf. Instead of up, up, up, up, up, over, down, down, down, down, down, etc. it's up, down, up, down. Gulp. We lasted about three hours, and we came back in.

Steve starts school tomorrow - a sophomore. Almost 16. Gulp again.

And I'm one day into my six cities in five days tour. Today was New York City and Melville, NY. Tomorrow Chicago (yes, it counts, even if I live there), Wednesday is Atlanta, Thursday Philadelphia, Friday Winston-Salem. And then Chicago again.
